Former Columbus Crew attacker Dominic Oduro wants more than redemption.

After being traded to TFC in June, the Ghanaian says he’s hungry for something other than three points.

Papa John’s.

He has already “arranged” a rendezvous with the U.S. chain.

“Pizza before (the game) and pizza after in the locker room,” Oduro said with a laugh a day ahead of TFC’s return to Columbus.

Oduro was known for two things during his time in Ohio — his blazing speed and the amount of times he frequented television screens in local Papa John’s commercials.

By the end of his time in Columbus, though, he was known more for the latter.

He wasn’t playing under current bench boss Greg Berhalter before his departure — something he’s looking to put right Saturday night at Crew Stadium.

“You have to keep your cool,” Oduro told reporters. “These games are really critical. You don’t want to try and prove too much to your former team.
