Nigeria Players Abroad

I’m faster than Walcott –Akpom


Nineteen-year-old Anglo- Nigerian’s Arsenal striker, Chuba Akpom, has claimed to be the fastest player at the Emirates, ahead of England international Theo Walcott and right-back Hector Bellerin.

Answering questions from the British press, Akpom did not think twice when quizzed about the sprint king at Arsenal.

In the question and answer session, Akpom picked Arsenal’s record goalscorer of all time Thierry Henry ahead of another club legend Dennis Bergkamp.

He had difficulty choosing the greatest player of all time, but he finally settled for retired Brazil international Ronaldo after he initially went for his idol, Thierry Henry.

He stated that Alexis Sanchez is the best player he’s played against at training.

On a lighter note, the teenager confessed that he has a crush on American singer Beyonce while he chose her husband, Jay-Z, as his favourite artist
