Eating Fufu Is Secret To My Speed – Karim Adeyemi Says After Scoring Against Chelsea

Borussia Dortmund’s Karim Adeyemi says eating African dishes, especially fufu is the secret to his speed.


The striker who is of Nigerian descent netted the lone goal for the German side in their win over Chelsea in the Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie on Wednesday.
“I eat a lot of African foods,” the German speedster told CBSSportGolazo in a post-game interview at the Signal Iduma Park when asked about the secret to his speed. “I have good genetics from my dad so I think it will be difficult.”
“It is called fufu, and it’s a Nigerian food which is very good,” he added when pressed further.
Adeyemi’s goal came during a period of sustained dominance from the visitors early in the second half, with the Germany forward pouncing on a clearance from a Chelsea corner.
He sensed the opportunity and ran the length of the field, rounding both Enzo Fernandez and goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to give Dortmund the lead in the first-leg tie.
Dortmund captain Jude Bellingham told German TV when Adeyemi finds himself in space “not many players can really stop him.”
“He had a tough time coming here at the start – finding his feet – but now he’s flying.”
