Ike Ibrahim Shorunmu (born October 16, 1967) is a former football goalkeeper from Nigeria.


Shorunmu was born in Lagos. After a few years in Nigeria he moved to play in Switzerland, and made his mark there. He was bought by Turkish club Beşiktaş J.K. in 1999 for $2,400,000 — but they released him as they thought he spent too much time with the national team. Shorunmu later played for other Swiss and Turkish clubs.

International career[edit]

He has been the first-choice goalkeeper of the national team, and played at the 2002 FIFA World Cup. Shorunmu was brought into the Nigerian national team by coach Clemens Westerhof in 1992.

Coaching career[edit]

Shorunmu has recently served as the national team goalkeeper coach as well as for Enyimba F.C.. In 2010 Shorunmu was hired in the same capacity for Heartland F.C.
