The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

ADE­BAYO AK­IN­FENWA vowed to put his celebrity sta­tus to one side and fo­cus on per­form­ing for AFC Wim­ble­don.

The striker has gained cult sta­tus for his im­pos­ing physique, TV ap­pear­ances and sta­tus on the pop­u­lar FIFA se­ries as the world’s strong­est foot­baller.

But the 33-year-old striker has vowed to fo­cus on the Dons and not get car­ried away.

“I'm a foot­baller first and fore­most,” he said. “The out­side stuff is nice but it’s sec­ondary. I’m a League Two foot­baller get­ting known na­tion­ally and glob­ally. It’s cool, I’ll count my bless­ings but it’s foot­ball. I want to do well for AFC.”
