After scoring the goal that handed Borussia Dortmund a 1-0 over Chelsea in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16, Karim Adeyemi who displayed lighting pace as he blitzed past Enzo Fernandez before rounding Kepa to score explained just why he’s so fast.
The 21-year-old German footballer who was born to a Nigerian father and a Romanian mother told the journalist that alongside having good genetics form his dad, eating a lot of African foods has helped him to become very fast.
Journalist: “Karim, tell me what you eat, because I wanna be as fast as you.”
Adeyemi: “I eat a lot of African foods, but I have good genetics from my dad so I think it’s a bit difficult for you to get fast.”
Journalist: “What’s the African food called?”
