Dirk Kuyt leaves Liverpool for Fenerbahce

June 3, 2012

Dirk Kuyt, Liverpool, Fenerbahce,

After the season came to an end, there were speculations about Dirk Kuyt leaving Liverpool and joining Feyenoord, while host of other teams were also interested in the Dutch hitman. He finally signed for Fenerbahce, a Turkish club. The player had joined Liverpool in 2006 and was one of the players who always gave it all. He was one of the fans’ favourite.  Dirk Kuyt scored a total of 71 goals for Liverpool.

During the 2011-12 season, he did not get many chances to play in the starting 11. He did not like the idea of warming the bench at Liverpool, where he had some of his best days. Kenny Dalglish did not use him for most of the matches. His team’s victory at Carling Cup during the concluded season has to be the highlight of this Liverpool player apart from scoring some great goals for the club. Surprisingly this was the only Silverware that the club won during his reign as a player.

It was expected that the Liverpool player who played for half a decade at Anfield might stay with the reds following the appointment of the new manager, Brendan Rodgers. But, he must have some other plans, which prompted him to leave the club, where he was respected by fans, staff, officials and his team mates. But, it is his decision to walk away from Anfield, so there are no grievances from either side.

It is time for Liverpool players to sing, ‘You will never walk alone’, for the player will reside in the heart of many a Liverpool fans. He will be remembered for his never give up attitude and his fighting spirit, along with his silky skills on the football pitch.
