David Accam: Helsingborg striker hoping for Avram Grant to boost his Ghana career

Sought-after striker David Accam hopes his international career will be given an exponential boost with the appointment of new coach Avram Grant.

Accam, who has been in top form since joining Swedish side Helsingborg, enjoyed little game time during Kwesi Appiah’s two-year tenure.

Despite hitting a rich vein of scoring form, the 22-year-old was axed from Ghana’s provisional World Cup squad and missed the tournament in Brazil.

The former Right to Dream trainee played his first match for the Black Stars during the final 2015 AFCON qualifier against Togo in Tamale last month.

Accam hopes his national team chances will improve with the experienced former Chelsea manager in-charge.

“I know Avram is a good coach who as a lot of experience in managing African players especially in Portsmouth,” he told Joy FM.

“Personally I always come and do my best but I know the coach is the one who decides who plays for the national team.

“For me I want to play for my country and playing at the nations cup is big stage for every player that’s why every player wants to be there so yeah I want to play for Ghana at the nations cup and am always ready.”

Accam was second top scorer in the 2014 Swedish Premier League with 17 goals.
