Nigerian-born Borussia Dortmund winger Karim Adeyemi, whose lone goal was the only one on the scoresheet in the 1-0 defeat of Chelsea in the Wednesday Champions League match has made a sterling revelation.
At post match conference, he attributed his remarkable pace to his consumption of the Nigerian dish, Fufu.
Chelsea were undone by Adeyemi’s moment of brilliance in the Champions League which has seen Enzo Fernandez mocked ahead of the second leg at Stamford Bridge.
Adeyemi’s blistering pace saw him go the length of the pitch before rounding the goalkeeper.
He said, “I eat a lot of African food! It’s called fufu, and it’s a Nigerian food which is very good. I also have good genetics from my dad!” CBS reported him as saying.
The 21-year-old scored the only goal in the game, taking on a solo run against an uninspiring Chelsea defense to show the world how much of a deadly attacker he is.Consequently, his goal awarded him the Man of the match.
Despite representing the German senior team, he still carries his African heritage with him as footage emerged of him devouring “Fufu’ with his father
He joined Dortmund from RB Salzburg in July 2022 for €38 million and has scored five goals in 23 appearances for the German side ho believe it was a good investment
BVB will now carry their single-goal advantage handed by Adeyemi to face the Blues at Stamford Bridge on the 7th of march.
