The Dutch striker Dirk Kuyt has said that he is extremely confident that Fenerbahce will get the right result against Galatasaray when the two archrivals come together in a meeting. The rivalry between the Turkish club’s Fenerbahce and Galatasaray is extremely famous. The former Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt will be part of this rivalry for the first time because he recently completed his move to the Turkish club. Ahead of this match, the 31-year-old has said that he is someone who has a wealth of experience of playing in such big matches due to his experiences in England and Netherlands.
When he was a Feyenoord player, Dirk Kuyt has recalled how the matches against Ajax were extremely intense. He has also said that he experienced the same when he was playing for Liverpool due to their derbies with Merseyside club Everton. Kuyt has a good record of scoring in the derby matches. He scored against Ajax in his last five matches for Feyenoord, while he has also scored against Everton while playing for Liverpool. He completed his £ 1 million move to Turkish club in the summer, while also saying that he expects a number of high-profile Dutch players like Robin van Persie to join him in the future.
“I’m used to big derbies, I played in the Liverpool derby against Everton and the Liverpool-Manchester United derby as well as the Ajax-Feyenord derby in the Netherlands. I’ve scored in a few derbies, when I was at Feyenoord I scored in my last five games against Ajax. It was an incredible feeling to score for Liverpool against Everton. I love these big games, the only thought we have going into these matches is to win,” said the 31-year-old. He has been extremely good for Galatasaray so far by giving six assists and 11 goals.
