Ghana and Chicago Fire forward David Accam has revealed he was only training with Stoke City to maintain his fitness and not to sign a contract as widely speculated.
The 25-year-old forward who has since rejoined his MLS side for preseason told MLSSoccer.com that even on holidays, staying fit remained high on his agenda and that was why he was training with the English Premier League side.
“I… went there to look around and see their facilities,” he said.
“I had a week training, and everything went really well. To be fair, I just needed to keep myself fit because we had a long offseason, so I just went there to keep myself fit.
“I trained with the guys, all the coaches were impressed, but at the moment I’m here, and I don’t want to look back at what happened. I’m here, I want to start the season going.
“I just want to keep doing well. If I keep doing well, there will be teams that will be after you, and throughout my career that’s what I’ve done. Every season there are teams that are interested, and at the moment I’m still here.”
