Liverpool Fans Make Today the Official Dirk Kuyt Appreciation Day

He might have left the club many years ago now, but Liverpool supporters have made today the official Dirk Kuyt appreciation day, following the striker’s retirement.

At the grand old age of 36, Kuyt decided to hang up his boots at the weekend after scoring a hat-trick in Feyenoord’s final league match of the season – and securing the club their first Eredivise title since 1999.

Whilst Sunday’s game alone was probably enough to seal him legendary status at Feyenoord, Kuyt is still massively popular in Merseyside too.

He only won one League Cup with the Reds, but he scored the winning penalty against Chelsea in 2007’s Champions League semi-final, and scored a memorable hat-trick against Manchester United in 2011.

his tireless work ethic and dedication to the cause seems to have lived long in the memory with plenty of Liverpool fans:

He might not have been the most gifted player in Liverpool’s history – but where does Kuyt rank in terms of the club’s cult heroes?
