Feyenoord are continuing their impressive form in the league after securing a fourth consecutive victory at the start of the season.
However, this victory was made possible because of striker Dirk Kuyt, who defied his age with a brilliant brace against Excelsior. Feyenoord have been one of the surprise packages of the Dutch Eredivisie 2016-17 season. They were expected to be in the mix to the Champions League qualification outfits, but they have stormed to the top of the table after a sensational start. However, the team looked like being in danger of suffering the first defeat of the season as they were trailing 1-0 after just 26 minutes.
Kuyt, who recently watched his team come up against Manchester United and Fenerbahce in the Champions League draw, was in inspired form and he came up with the equaliser just one minute before half-time. This proved to be the crucial element in the game asExcelsior fell like a pack of cards following this goal.Kuyt’s second goal of the game came just before the hour and this put Feyenoord in the lead.Excelsior’s confidence seemed to hit a rock bottom after watching the striker scored the goal. They conceded two more goals in the next five minutes to lose the game in a poor fashion.
There are many footballers who are inspiration to several others, especially the uprising star players of today.
Yordi Teijsse is one such example who is following in the footsteps of Dirk Kuyt. New Dundee would be signing him on. Being a follower of the Holland based footballer, he is also willing to go over the North Sea and be a professional player in British football. Yord is 23 years of age and has recently signed up with Dens Park. This came about when he had a good spell of playing with the top Dutch team of amateurs, Quick Boys. Kuyt was also part of the amateur club, explaining the reason why Yordi, is influenced by the player who used to be an attacker on the Liverpool club rolls.
Kuyt has gone back to Holland and he is now part of the giants team Feyenoord. His links with the team that was his amateur club have been rekindled. The club is part of Katwijk, a seaside town. The 35 year old player was also in the stands where he watched his amateur club players play the game which was instrumental for Yordi bagging the latest offer. He has been able to score about 30 goals in a total of 26 games. (more…)
The Dutch winger Dirk Kuyt arrived to Fenerbahce on June of 2012 as he signed a 3 year long contract and his time with the club of Turkey is reaching it’s last few months and now the future of Kuyt is starting to appear undecided as the player still has not decided on what he wants to do.
Dirk Kuyt has already announced to the public that he does not want to extend his current contract with Fenerbahce and this means that when the current season ends, he will turn into a free agent.
Southampton, Ronald Koeman has displayed his interest in signing Dirk Kuyt when the summer transfer window arrives and he becomes a free agent. Kuyt is well aware of how it is to perform in the Premier League as the Dutch winger used to wear the Liverpool jersey for over 5 years.
When the 34 year old player was asked during an interview about his near future, Kuyt replied by saying that he simply does not know as he has not discussed it with his agent as he said: ‘’I have not have time to discuss that with my agent.As soon as I do, I will let you know more news.” (more…)
