Ghana international David Accam opened up on his razor blade form in the MLS after a near perfect start to the season. The Chicago Fire attacker credited weight lifting and marshal art for his rampant form in the MLS.
In an exclusive interview from his Chicago based in the US, the Ghanaian import credited Chuck Norris for his ruthless form in the division. The Ghanaian forward grew up a fan of the television series “Walker, Texas Ranger,” which starred martial arts expert Chuck Norris.
“In Ghana, the show was huge, and every kid watched it when it was on once a week,” Accam said after practice Wednesday in Bridgeview.
Walker, a mix, recently gave birth to eight puppies back in Ghana.
“I haven’t seen the babies yet, but I have pictures and am looking forward to seeing them,” Accam said.
After scoring 19 goals over his first two seasons, Accam credits his decision to add a more strenuous weightlifting program in the offseason with helping his game.
“I feel sharper and stronger and can see the difference,” Accam said. “I know I can do better than what I’m doing, and hopefully I can get into my game more so we can get points on the road.”
The Black Stars forward is expected to earn a place in the team when the new list is release very soon.
