Eii, Ghana's Klinsmann returns to Dutch soccer again

Postby Turbo Turbulance » Wed Jun 13, 2012 6:05 pm

Ghanaian striker Matthew Amoah has returned to Dutch football by joining Heerenveen after a torrid time in Turkey,.The 31-year-old signed a one-year contract with Heerenveen Wednesday evening after leaving Turkish side Mersin Idman Yurdu where he suffered serious breaches of his contract.

Amoah’s fortunes plummeted when he moved to Turkey last season but has returned to the league where he made his name in a bid to revive his flagging career.

The Ghanaian striker is delighted to have signed for the club in Holland where he scored 115 goals with Vitesse and NAC Breda and before leaving for Turkey.

“The Dutch football suits me. I am very happy that I’m going to play for SC Heerenveen,” Amoah said.

“Heerenveen is a beautiful club, and always plays in the top tier and also they are often playing European club competitions.

“If you compare with my former club NAC, Heerenveen is much larger. I hope to perform well here.

“I want good show to supporters of Heerenveen. They will enjoy it.”

Heerenveen technical director Johan Hansma is pleased with the arrival of the attacker saying he will add valuable experience to their young attacking line.

“We have many young strikers in the squad, and therefore we wanted to consciously attract an experienced attacker,” Hansma said.

“Amoah can transfer his experience to the team especially the younger players and will even bring peace to the team if things are not going well.”

Amoah left Turkish football as he has not been paid his salary for several months and his transfer fee of about US$1m has not been paid.

He was also not given playing time which motivated him to leave the league where many Ghanaian players have suffered injustices.

Amoah confident Ghana will qualify for World Cup

By MTNFootball.com

Wednesday Jun 20, 15:28 +0200
Mathew Amoah believes the Black Stars can qualify for Brazil 2014 World Cup Holland-based striker Mathew Amoah believes Ghana can qualify to the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals despite recording mixed results in the opening qualifiers.


The 2010 World Cup quarter-finalists thumped Lesotho 7-0 but suffered a 1-0 reverse against Zambia in Ndola this month.


The Black Stars are second in Group D with three points; one point behind leaders Sudan.


Amoah-who played at Ghana's two World Cup appearances in 2006 and 2010-is backing the team to rediscover their winning form.


"Even though we have played two matches and three points I don't think there is any cause for alarm," Amoah said.


"Playing away against any team is not easy let alone African champions Zambia.


"We are just at the start of qualifier and I am confident we will qualify.


"There is a big chance for Ghana to qualify for the World Cup so we should support the team."


Amoah signed for Dutch Eredivisie side SC Heerenveen this month after an ill-fated spell at Turkish side Mersin.

15 goals is a very realistic target for him at this point, in this league.

Amoah sees improvement under Van Basten

By MTNFootball.com

Friday Jun 29, 10:51 +0200

Matthew Amoah wants to improve under Van Basten at Heerenveen Ghana striker Matthew Amoah hopes to get sharper working under Dutch legend Marco Van Basten at Heerenveen.

The 31-year-old returned to the Dutch top flight league by signing a one-year-contract for Heerenveen this month after an unsuccessful stint with Turkish side Mersin İdmanyurdu SK.


Van Basten took charge of the Eredivisie side in February and Amoah believes the former world footballer of the Year will be a fantastic trainer.


"Fantastic isn't it? I would love the experience of training under one of the best strikers in football history," Amoah said.


Amoah has an impressive scoring record of 114 goals for four different clubs
