EPL: Sunday Oliseh reacts as Super Eagles’ Carl Ikeme returns

Former Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has described former Nigeria international goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme as a “lovely human being”.

Oliseh said this while reacting to the goalkeeper’s beautiful return to English Premier League side Wolves training for the first time in nearly five years.

Reacting, in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Saturday, Oliseh wrote: “Same here Mimi. Such a lovely human being.”

Recall that Ikeme was invited to  training a few days ago and was in high spirits as he joined the rest of the squad for their training session.

The 35-year-old had an emotional return to the Compton Park training ground of the team and met his teammates of old.

During his training with Wolves on his return, Ikeme showed impressive reflexes and looked sharp like he never left.

However, it is not yet clear if the former Super Eagles star, who was seen by many football lovers as Nigeria’s best goalkeeper after Vincent Enyeama, has fully returned to action.

Meanwhile, Oliseh, in 2015, gave Ikeme his first national team bow in a goalless draw against Tanzania.

Ikeme, who spent all his professional career on the books of Wolves, went on to have ten caps for the Super Eagles.

He was in goal when Nigeria defeated Zambia in Ndola in a 2018 World Cup qualifying fixture but was soon diagnosed with Leukaemia.

Ikeme announced his retirement from football in 2018 following his battle with Leukaemia.
