David Accam changes name on jersey in tribute to late father

31 Mar 2019, 19:00

Philadelphia Union winger David Accam has permanently changed the name on the back of his jersey to 'Titi' in a special tribute to his father who recently passed on.

The fans had the pleasure of seeing the change in the 2-0 victory at Cincinnati on Saturday night (March 30).

The Ghanaian winger shared the nickname with his father, and he previously sported the moniker while playing in Sweden from 2012 to 2014 respectively.

''It means a lot because it’s a name that me and my dad we shared," Accam confirmed after the game.

"For me, I think it’s the best way to do it. To wear 'Titi' on my back to honour my late dad.''

Last week, Accam dedicated his two-goal, one-assist in the Columbus Crew drubbing to his father.

Although it’s only two games, Accam is clearly playing with inspiration as he looks to put a dour 2018 season in the rearview mirror.

He scored one goal in 23 appearances in 2018, acquired via Chicago Fire after recording 33 goals and 15 assists across three seasons in the Windy City.

Accam now has three goals and two assists across his last two games.
