Accam cuts short 2018 MLS season as he undergoes surgery

Ghana and Philadelphia Union winger David Accam has cut short his 2018 Major League Soccer (MLS) season after he underwent a successful hernia surgery on Tuesday.

Accam who joined Philadelphia at the beginning of the season from Chicago Fire, helped The Union book their ticket to the Audi 2018 MLS Cup Playoffs, but the player has been forced to sit out of the rest of the 2018 regular season as well as the postseason playoffs after it was confirmed that he had a sports hernia.

The 28-year-old Ghanaian has endured a patchy first season with Philadelphia, comparing to his swashbuckling three seasons with Chicago; and the current situation even makes it worse.

In a brief chat with Ghana Soccer US (, Accam said he was feeling much better after the minor surgery.

He also confirmed that soccer fans have seen the last of him as far as the 2018 MLS season is concerned. “I’m out for the season. No playoff for me”, Accam lamented.
