Former Columbus Crew forward David Accam has expressed happiness after finally making a return to Europe after joining Swedish top-flight side Hammarby IF.
The Ghanaian international landed in Stockholm on Monday after delays due to visa issues in the United States where he has been playing for the past six years.
Accam, 30, is joining the Swedish giants on loan from Major League Soccer side Nashville SC.
“I am happy to be finally here even though it took long for me to be here due to circumstances beyond my control but finally I am happy, everything is sorted and to come here and start training with the boys again,” Accam told the club’s TV channel.
“I did everything to come here as soon as I can but because of FED Ex and visa issues. I’m just happy everything is done and I am here now,” he added.
The ace attacker left Sweden for the United States in 2015, after having some good moments with Ostersunds and Helsinborg.
He featured for MLS sides Chicago Fire, Philadelphia Union, Columbus Crew, and Nashville SC.
“I will start training tomorrow with the team, also I am not in a rush because I haven’t played in a long time so we trying to get to a level where I am more comfortable with the team,” Accam concluded.
