Dutchman Dirk Kuyt built a reputation as one of the hardest working footballers on the pitch during his time at Premier League giants Liverpool. Kuyt, 40, spent the most time at Liverpool amongst the clubs he played for during his professional career which ended in 2017. This is despite spending two different spells at Feyenoord whom he left to sign for Liverpool in 2006 for an undisclosed fee. Here are three reasons why Dirk Kuyt became a hero at Liverpool:

1. His hattrickagainst Manchester United – Liverpool and Manchester United share a fierce rivalry dating back to many decades ago and for a Liverpool player to score three goals against Manchester United will always be special for the Reds fans and he also did it in a unique way. Nine years ago, Dirk Kuyt scored three goals from a combined distance of less than six years as Liverpool beat Manchester United 3-1 at home.


Former Red star has said that the Jurgen Klopp men is a "perfect" team and could become the best team in Liverpool history. For him, Jurgen Klopp's team is on the verge of becoming one of the best and most memorable in history.
Liverpool under Klopp won their first league title since 1990 following a brilliant dominant Premier League campaign. After taking charge at Anfield in 2015, Klopp named himself 'the normal one,' saying nothing has changed about him. The German has won Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, the Premier League, and Club World Cup since taking charge at Anfield.

Meanwhile, Dick Kuyt, who spent six years at Liverpool from 2006 to 2012 and scored in the 2007 Champions League final loss to AC Milan, has applauded Klopp's great impact at the club. Kuyt answered "Absolutely," to France Football, when asked if the Reds are a perfect side. "Everyone is in tune," he added.

Pennant isn’t happy with the loss against Arsenal and has implied that Reds are on holiday mode

Former footballer Jermaine Pennant said that Liverpool is in holiday mode as he was disappointed when the Reds failed to win against Arsenal. With the defeat, the record set by Manchester City to reach 100 points in a single season remains unbroken. On last month, they have been named champions when City lost their matchagainst Chelsea. This was their first title afterthree-decade of waiting for the title.

Steven Bergwijn heaps praise on Jose Mourinho’s management

Tottenham Hotspur winger Steven Bergwijn has heaped praise on manager Jose Mourinho and revealed that the Portuguese played a key role in luring him to the north London side. The Netherlands international joined Spurs from PSV Eindhoven during the winter transfer window and he managed to make an instant impression with a goal on debut against Manchester City as the club sealed a 2-0 win.

Craig Burley urges Aubameyang to join better club than Chelsea

ESPN FC pundit Craig Burley believes Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should consider joining an elite club capable of winning the Champions League instead of Chelsea, who are under transition. The Gabon international has less than 14 months remaining on his existing contract with the Gunners and his reluctance to prolong his stay has led to the transfer speculation.


Former Netherlands and Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt has labelled Steven Gerrard as the best player he played with during his playing career. The former Feyenoord attacker retired at the end of 2016-2017 season after he led Feyenoord to the title. He scored a hat trick in the final match of the season.


Dirk Kuyt will go down as one of the hardest working players Liverpool will ever see. Originally purchased by Rafael Benitez in 2006 as a striker, he proved himself to be selfless and versatile by operating just as often on the right-wing.
Kuyt arrived on these shores with a prolific goalscoring record in Dutch football, latterly Feyenoord, and he instantly found favour on the Kop with an all-action debut as a substitute at home to West Ham on August 26, he didn't get a goal in his debut, but he never stopped running nor trying, a trait that will define his time with the Reds.


Adam Lallana moved to Liverpool from Southampton with the hope of continuing his journey of grace to grass but few years after the move happened, he looks set to leave on free transfer to the relief of the Reds.
If only he was as versatile as Dirk Kuyt, the holy trinity of Sadio Mane, Firmino and Mohammed Salah would not have put this much of a dent on his Liverpool career.


Liverpool perfect start to the Premier League means that there is less scrutiny on the team than normal. This is because it is difficult to scrutinize a team that has won all their matches this season. However, challenges will come and Klopp would have to turn to his bench for help at some point in the season.
The bench showed last season that it is capable of supporting the first team with DivorkOrigi, XherdanXhaqiri and Naby Keita contributing at different points of the season. However this season the bench has not had enough opportunities.


Liverpool have continued their excellent start to the season as the club chases their elusive Premier League title. As Jurgen Klopp men saw last season, it would take nothing short of perfection to fend off the challenge of Manchester City.

So far the Reds have had a perfect start winning their opening three games against Norwich, Southampton, and Arsenal. However, one area which would trouble Klopp is that his team has conceded in all their matches this season.
