Ghana striker Amoah finally extends NAC Breda contract

Published on: 20 May 2010

Ghana striker Matthew Amoah has signed a new three-year contract with Dutch side NAC Breda after protracted negotiations over the new deal.

The 29-year-old last month reached an agreement over his contract extension but his agent Kees Ploegsma pulled the plug over the deal over terms of the deal.

But the Ghana international signed for three years to make him fully concentrate on the upcoming World Cup in Soutyh Africa next month.

“I have finally signed the new deal with NAC Breda for the next three years to keep my mind at ease before the World Cup,” Amoah told Ghanasoccernet.com.

“I have to fully concentrate on the World Cup as I don’t want to go to the camp with any lingering doubts.

“The terms I have agreed are favourable to me and NAC Breda have also been very goiod to me so I have decided to stay.”

The major term of the contract is that NAC Breda will allow the striker to leave the club for a lower transfer fee if he gets a bigger offer after the World Cup.

Amoah has played for NAC Breda since 2007.

He has earlier played for Borussia Dortmund, Vitesse Arnhem and Fortuna Sittard.

    Brother Tamimu, U R absolutely spot on over Amoah's attitude and temperament. He is indeed very gregarious and open especially to his compatriots. I think many people who have met him will attest to that. No wonder he is very popular amongst his team mates.

    France has new a coach,Laurant Blanc has replaced Raymond Domenech.Here in Ghana our corrupt GFA officials(Randy ABbey,Nyantakyie,Fred Pappoe and Abedi Pele the shortee.) are afraid to fire mumu Milo.God punish them for inviting carcasses,injured players and colts players.(Richard Kingston,Rahim Ayew,Eric Addo,Dramani,Adiyiah,Essien Appiah,Vorsah,John Mensah,Agyemang Badu and Andre Ayew.The God of regular players like William Tierro,Yusif Chibsah,Nana Asare and Eric Bekoe will punish those crooks.

    Thanx Bro. Access. I was waiting for the "Professor's" answer. This shows you are well informed unlike the "Professor".

    good news for amoah but i hope he can improve on his bad record for the stars when it comes to major tourney.since he started playing for the stars way back 2002,he has only 1 goal to his credit in a major tournament.thus his goal against senegal in CAN 2006.I dont expect him to start for ghana in SA anyway.

    kenneth county it is very true what brother agboh is saying.laurent blanc will take over the euipe tricolor after the worldcup,that means current coach raymond domenech will not run things after the world cup.the french football federation has bought him out of his contract with girondin boardeaux.
