David Accam not included in Chicago Fire’s trip to Vancouver
Head coach of Chicago Fire, Veljko Paunovic has decided to give Ghana winger David Accam some more time to recover fully before he rejoins the first team.

Accam has started training with the team but is yet to play since he was sidelined by a knee strain.

Chicago Fire’s next three games in the Major League Soccer (MLS) are all away encounters but coach Paunovic has disclosed that Accam will be rested in the first of the three away ties against Vancouver whitecaps on Wednesday.

This, he believes will give the winger an ample time to recover fully.

“We are working still on Accam’s fitness and we want to take advantage of this possibility to build up his fitness level,” Paunovic told the official website of Chicago Fire on Monday when he delivered updates regarding the potential return the Ghanaian winger.

The Fire’s three-game road trips kicks off Wednesday at Vancouver Whitecaps which happens to be the club’s first midweek match of the season and their first game against a Western Conference opponents.

They will therefore head into the game without the service of David Accam who is believed to be working hard to regain match fitness after almost two-month absence.

However, Accam is slated to join the Fire in Foxborough, Massachusetts and could see action in Saturday’s clash with Gershon Koffie’s New England Revolution or the third leg of the trip, a midweek match against Lloyd Sam and Gideon Baah’s New York Red Bulls on Wednesday, May 18.

Meanwhile, former students of Right to Dream, Joshua Yaro and Emmanuel Boateng may potentially clash on Wednesday when Philadelphia Union play host to LA Galaxy in a midweek action.
