His importance at the club may have become less evident in the last 18 months but Dirk Kuyt will be a missed figure at Anfield for many loyal Kopites.
It was confirmed this weekend that the Dutchman had agreed a deal with Fenerbahçe and that he would be moving to the Turkish outfit in time for the new season.
Although he ultimately left the club for a paltry £1million, Kuyt’s highlight reel during his time at Liverpool includes some stellar performances and crucial goals that will be remembered for ages to come in the red half of Merseyside.
At such a crucial time in the Liverpool script however, now is not the time for dwelling on the past, no matter how recent it may be.
The corpse may still be fresh but it’s time to perform the post-mortem and consider who the top names will be to replace Dirk Kuyt at Liverpool.
