“As I walked up to him, he brought out two bananas for me to sign for him,” Akpoborie said.“I laughed because I did not want him to see my anger. I took both bananas and signed them. I got very angry, but I controlled myself.“But I could not get it out of my head.

“I was so furious and I ran like a mad dog on the pitch, just to make the guy sad. We beat Hertha that day, 3-1, I scored two very good goals.“At the end of the game, I went back to the spot the guy was standing, he was gone. The fans around started laughing and told me, he was angry I scored two goals and we won.”
