Ikeme Apologises To Fans Over Red Card Incident; Berates Hoolalan

By Johnny Edward:

Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has apologized to the fans for letting them down with a red card incident in Saturday's 3-1 defeat by Norwich City in a Sky Bet Championship clash at Carrow Road, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

Ikeme was sent off in the 72nd minute of the defeat after being adjudged to have brought down Wes Hoolalan in the box.

But the Nigeria goalkeeper insists it was a simulation; that the Irish midfielder dived to earn his side a penalty.

Ikeme on Sunday took to his Twitter handle to explain the unfortunate incident and apologise to the fans over the incident that caused  Wolves disadvantage, numerically, during the match.

"Some will say don't react. I understand your point. It's hard not to be frustrated when someone blatantly dives to win a penalty," Ikeme begins in a sequence of tweets.

"Then dives again when pushed on his Chest. I supposed you live and learn but this one is hard to take. I Apologise if anyone feels let down.

"A lot of Norwich fans not happy. I have nothing against your club or Wes . These things happen in football so we just move on."
