‘The secret to my speed is fufu’. – Borussia Dortmund star, Karim Adeyemi says after scoring the goal against Chelsea




Borussia Dortmund star, Karim Adeyemi, has revealed that the secret to how he became so fast is the African dish, fufu

The German-Nigerian striker scored the only goal for Dortmund against Chelsea in the champions league round of 16 first-leg tie at Signal Iduna park.


The striker, who is rated as the fastest man in the Bundesliga showed his incredible pace during the UEFA Champions League game against Chelsea on Wednesday night, February 15.

Adeyemi raced past Chelsea’s Enzo Fernandez to score a solo goal which sealed the winning for the German side.


Addressing the media after the game, Adeyemi, who was born in Germany and of Nigerian descent said fufu makes him faster.

“I eat a lot of African foods but I have good genetics from my dad. The food is called Fufu from Nigeria,”

“The only thing I was thinking of against Enzo Fernandez was that I just need to get the ball past him. You just try to win your duels, the goalkeeper came out and there may have been a bit of luck, but I’m delighted with the goal.

It’s a case of the new year, new luck. For me, it’s that simple. As a team, we talked a lot during the break and it brought us closer together.

The win tonight was crucial and it was unbelievable to play in front of these fans. We wanted to give Chelsea a tough game from start to finish and we’ve won.” He said in a post-match interview.
