David Accam believes the two years spent in the USA’s Major League Soccer will be an added advantage getting ready for a career at the Philadelphia Union.
The Ghana international moved from Chicago Fire to the Union on Monday for a fee of 1.2 million and was introduced to the fans and media shortly after.
In his first interview since signing for Philadelphia, Accam maintained his experience in the last two years in North America will help him acclimatize quickly to his new surroundings, stating his hope of chalking similar feats at Union.
“I think I have experienced both in losing and winning,” Accam said during his introductory press conference Tuesday from Talen Energy Stadium.
“My first two years in Chicago, we didn’t do well. But for me, I still managed to do good things on that team. Last year was one of my best seasons in MLS. So for me, I have enough experience to bring something to this team. We have enough quality on this team already. I just need to do my part, so hopefully we all click and get the best results.”
Accam scored 33 goals and grabbed 5 assists in his time with Chicago Fire.
