Karim Adeyemi, the German-Nigerian striker, has credited his speed to nutrients obtained from eating Nigerian food and genes from his father.
Adeyemi disclosed this during post-match after helping Dortmund beat Chelsea 1-0 at the Signa Idunna Park.
And speaking after the match, Adeyemi was asked the secret to his speed which led to the goal.
“I eat a lot of African food but I have good genetics from my dad so I think it will be a little bit difficult for you (the interviewer) to get fast,”
When pressed on what kind of food is that, he replied: “It’s called fufu from Nigeria and it’s also very good.”
Borussia Dortmund also shared a picture of Adeyemi during the game and captioned it, “fueled by fufu.”
