Dirk Kuyt to stay with Feyenoord until the end of the 2016-2017 season

Former Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt has signed a one-year contract extension with Dutch club Feyenoord that will see him stay until the end of the 2016-2017 season.


Dirk Kuyt has been impressive this season scoring 19 goals in 32 league games and has been rewarded with a new contract.

The former Liverpool player said that he is happy to be playing for another year with Feyenoord and that he will do everything he can in order to bring success to the team. He said that the whole squad was determined to have a good season, and they managed to win the Dutch Cup. He believes that the team is hungry for more trophies, and he is sure that next season will be better in terms of silverware.

The Feyenoord director van Geel has stated that Dirk Kuyt is an important player for them on and off the pitch. He said that he is happy that Kuyt will be staying another year because he is a natural leader that helps lift the atmosphere in the team.

Feyenoord manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst believes that having a player like Dirk Kuyt in the team can be beneficial for the younger players. He thinks that the younger players can learn from Kuyt experience, and this can help the team progress next season.

The player who is currently 35-years old is in his second spell with Feyenoord. Indeed, he joined them during the 2003-2004 season and will spend 3 years with them making over 100 appearances. He will score 83 goals during the process.

He will then leave them in 2006 when he will sign for Liverpool. He will spend 7 years in the Premier League before moving to Fenerbahce and then return to Feyenoord.
