I Told Stephen Keshi About My Son – Abbey Adeyemi

Abbey Adeyemi, father of Borussia Dortmund winger, Karim Adeyemi has revealed one of his major dreams as a father that didn’t see the light of the day.

In an interview closely monitored by NPFLUpdates correspondent, Abbey revealed that he approached then Super Eagles’ head coach Stephen Keshi. And they discussed about his son and his dream of flying the Nigerian Green and White colours.

At the time when Abbey met Keshi, Adeyemi was still a boy between the ages of 9-10 years. But the father remained optimistic that his son will make it big in the world of football.

“My son plays for Germany but he was educated in the Nigerian way. And I make sure he stays connected with his roots by visiting Nigeria since he was a kid,” Abbey said in the interview but was quoted by NPFLUpdates.

“I was so sure that he will be a top star that I told the Nigerian coach Keshi back then. When he was around 9-10 years old that I have a son who will in the future fly the Nigeria colours.”

Adeyemi in contrast to the dream and aspirations of his father chose to represent Germany is country of birth. Over Nigeria(his paternal country) and Romania (his maternal country).

Last week, a solo goal by Adeyemi dampened the high spirit of Chelsea FC during a UEFA Champions League Knockout stages fixture. The match which was held at the Signal Iduna Park, saw the Nigerian putting in a MOTM performance.

And interestingly, the 21-year-old shortly after the Chelsea clash made a shocking revelation to the press. According to Adeyemi, he inherited his speed abilities from his father and through the consumption of Fufu. A local food common to the Nigerian people.
