The Super Eagles shot-stopper has admitted that his recovery from injury is taking more time than expected

Nigeria goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has disclosed that his recovery from hamstring injury has been ‘slow and tough.’

The 31-year-old has been on the sideline since March having suffered a hamstring injury while on international duty with the Super Eagles in London.

Ikeme revealed that he is looking forward to the Wolves pre-season training which starts next week as he eyes immediate return to action with the club and the Nigeria national team.

“It's [recovery and fitness] been slow and tough. It was something I was carrying for a long time. I couldn't play or train,” Ikeme told TheNFF.

“It took more than a normal hamstring injury. I have been working hard every day with the physios and hopefully, I'm closer to getting back to training.

“We start our pre-season on Monday so hopefully, I can start building up in training and hopefully, I can be available for our games and the Nigeria games coming up as well.

"I think I should be back to full fitness because I have not been able to do too much but I've been strong. I have been training hard with the team in the last three weeks.

"I'm hoping I should be back to normal training in two weeks."
