In the period 2007-2011 the former international (44 international matches for Ghana) grew into a Breda crowd favourite.

With 11 goals in 25 games, in his debut year (2007/2008) he was one of the mainstays in the team that finished in a historic third place.

Amoah scored 56 times in 128 games for NAC Breda.
