KUYT BACKS LIVERPOOL FANS

The former Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt has praised the Liverpool fans by saying that they are one of the best in the world, while the atmosphere that they generate at Anfield is also unbelievable.

The 32-year-old Dutch forward recently brought an end to the six year spell at Anfield by moving to the Turkish club Fenerbahçe for around £ 1 million. He has also said that he is yet to experience the full atmosphere of the Fenerbahçe due to the stadium ban that has been ongoing. He has also praised the life in Turkey by saying that the people are extremely friendly.

Even though the Carling cup last season was the only trophy Dirk Kuyt lifted during his six year spell with the Premier league club, he has no regrets about the Anfield career. The striker was initially signed by Rafael Benitez to play as a centre forward, but was eventually moved to the right-wing position. So far, he has made 15 appearances for the Turkish club this season. He has scored two goals and created eight goals, and has been making a huge impact already at the club. Kuyt has said that he cannot wait for the stadium ban to be lifted.

"I think the Liverpool supporters are great, I played there for six years and the atmosphere in the stadium is unbelievable. I haven't been able to get the full Fenerbahce experience yet due to the stadium ban however, I saw glimpses in the Marseille game and if we get support like that in the future they will help us win many games. We are very happy to be here and I also feel very welcome by the Turkish people,” said the 32-year-old striker. He will be hoping to lift the Turkish championship title with his club this season.
