Paul Pogba Had a Lot of Praise For Dirk Kuyt Last Night

Paul Pogba Had a Lot of Praise For Dirk Kuyt Last Night

Dirk Kuyt has revealed that Paul Pogba had some high praise for him during Feyenoord’s 1-0 victory over Manchester United last night.

The former Liverpool star may be 36, but he’s still good enough to turn out for the Dutch side he made his name with at the start of his career.

He played the full 90 minutes as his team got their Europa League campaign off to a winning start by beating the English Premier League giants at home.

Kuyt’s definitely still got it, playing in the majority of Feyenoord’s games so far this season while scoring three goals.

And the quality he’s shown, and still showing, throughout his career isn’t lost on Pogba – with Manchester United’s record signing telling Kuyt that during last night’s game.

The Dutchman said, per voetbalzone.nl: “Paul Pogba told me on the field it is amazing I am still running and flying.

“It is beautiful that he has respect for me, especially because he is one of the best players in Europe.”

It’s nice to hear Pogba appreciates a player who has offered a lot to his teams over an 18-year career.

Liverpool fans definitely don’t need reminding how good Kuyt is after his spell at Anfield between 2006 and 2012.

He scored 71 goals in 286 appearances for the club and was unlucky not to add more major honours to the one League Cup he won there.
