Porto's Iker Casillas, Manchester United's David De Gea and Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen led the tributes after the sad announcement.

The Barca safehand on twitter said " A tweet simply too short to express my thoughts about Carl Ikeme", afterwards he turned to his facebook which gave him more space to express himself and encourage other goalkeepers even as he expressed hope that the Nigerian global can adopt a positive mind in his period of trial.

On Friday, the awful news spread across the world, with fellow goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, the Barcelona No. 1, expressing his support in a heartfelt Facebook post.
