I scored a goal after eating fufu – Ransford-Yeboah Konigsdorffer


Black Stars winger Ransford-Yeboah Konigsdorffer has shared that he finds great energy and goal-scoring prowess when he eats popular Ghanaian dishes like fufu and Jollof rice.

The 21-year-old recounted a time when he had fufu at his father’s place in Berlin and later scored a goal for Hamburger SV.

“I would say, Fufu or Jollof rice [my favourite]. I can’t cook, my father can. Always when I’m in Berlin he is cooking for me but for me, I don’t know how to cook. Two weeks ago I was in Berlin and I eat fufu, the next week I scored,” he said to Ghanaweb.

Konigsdorffer, who was born in Berlin to a Ghanaian father and a German-Guadeloupean mother, had always hoped to play for Ghana at the international level. He finally got the chance to fulfil his dream last year when he made his Ghana debut in a friendly match against Nicaragua.

Despite previously playing for Germany’s U-21 team, Konigsdorffer’s desire to play for Ghana prompted him to change his allegiance.

He did not make the World Cup final squad, but he has been recalled for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar.

Furthermore, Konigsdorffer has been invited to join the Black Meteors, for the upcoming U-23 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Morocco.

Konigsdorffer scored eight goals in Bundesliga II in the just-ended season.
