Fufu from Nigeria makes me fast says Dortmund’s UCL scorer, Adeyemi


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.

Born to a Nigerian father and a Romanian mother, Adeyemi scored a contender for goal of the season in the Champions League with his solo effort against the Blues.

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.”
