NFF to hire retired goalkeeper Carl Ikeme into Super Eagles technical crew

The Nigeria Football Federation has announced that it will offer retired Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme coaching education as a goalkeeper trainer and then absorb him into the technical crew of the national team
NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, said the federation is in contact with Ikeme, who announced his retirement from the game on Friday, with a view to training him as a goalkeeper coach.

He said “Carl Ikeme was an embodiment of absolute dedication , commitment and patriotic fervour in the games that he played for the Super Eagles. The circumstances of his retirement from the game are somewhat depressing, even as we thank God for his life. The Nigeria Football Federation will find the resources to send him on a coaching course , and afterwards absorb him into the technical crew of the Super Eagles. That is the least we can do for such a dedicated patriot.”

Wolverhampton Wanderers goalie Ikeme, was diagnosed with acute leukaemia in July 2017 but entered into complete remission only last month .
