Some Wolves have been reacting to former goalkeeper Carl Ikeme being pictured back in official club training gear.
The 35-year-old was taking part in an exercise for all current Wolves goalkeepers, from the U8s all the way up to the first-team.
The session was overseen by goalkeeping coach Tony Roberts, who joined the club in the summer.
According to the Wolves official website: “The importance of the club’s goalkeeping philosophy was underlined, as was the need to make use of Wolves’ elite coaches and technical staff to help achieve their goals through hard work and dedication.
The purpose of the talk was to teach the art of goalkeeping ‘the Wolves way’.
New signing Jose Sa and veteran John Ruddy were in attendance.
Also present though, was popular former Molineux stopper Carl Ikeme.
Apparently, he spoke about his experiences to the group, providing valuable insight into what it takes to make it to the first-team.
Ikeme retired from football in July 2018 on medical grounds, after previously being diagnosed with acute leukaemia a year prior.
He informed fans that he was in complete remission a month before hanging up his gloves.
The club initially retired the number one jersey in Ikeme’s honour, with Rui Patricio electing to wear the number 11 shirt.
When Sa signed for the club in the summer, Ikeme gave the 28-year-old his blessing to wear his old number shirt.
Fans react to seeing Ikeme in Wolves training gear
On social media, fans absolutely loved seeing Ikeme pictured in the new training gear.
He remains a very popular figure at the club, and it was lovely to see him back involved.
Here’s what some people said after Wolves tweeted out pictures of him yesterday. Ikeme himself also tweeted:
Great to see the big man back at Wolves passing on his wealth of experience!!
