Dirk Kuyt completes emotional farewell from LFC

4 June 2012


Dirk Kuyt has completed his move to Turkish side Fenerbahce and has taken the time to thank Liverpool fans for all of their support over the years.

31-year-old Kuyt spent six years at the club after being signed from Feyenoord by Rafa Benitez in 2006. In his time at the club, he has three different ownerships, four different managers, players come and go, a European Cup Final and Carling Cup success.

The Dutch international has signed a three-year deal with Fenerbahce and had this message for the Kop faithful on his departure from Merseyside:

“I would like to say to a big thank you to Liverpool supporters. I had six wonderful years at Liverpool and it was a pleasure to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world and the best supporters in the world. Not only me, but also my wife and children will miss the LFC supporters. I’d like to thank everyone for all the support they gave me and I will miss them, but LFC will always be in my heart.”

His wife, Gertrude Kuyt, also took the time, via Twitter, to thank Reds fans and the people of Liverpool. She said:

“We truly gone mis Liverpool! We love that city! Thanks to our friends, players and all the people around us who looked after us last 6 years.”

“I want to thank all the supporters for all the warm and kindly messages for our family! It’s give us a warm feeling and a lot of respect…”

This Is Anfield would like to wish the Kuyt’s all the best for the future and hope to see you back at Anfield soon.
