Watch: Dirk Kuyt Scored Two Cracking Volleys For Feyenoord At The Weekend
By Gavin Cooney

He's still got it.

At the ripe old age of 36, former Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt is back playing with Feyenoord in Holland, and - allowing for the relatively poor quality of the Dutch league - has been tearing it up.

His side were trailing 1-0 against Excelsior before Kuyt struck this sumptuous, outside-of-the-boot volley to draw them level. They eventually ran out 4-1 winners, thanks in part to this Van Persie-esque chest control and volley. Here are the goals:

Kuyt scored 51 times for Liverpool in 208 games, which is hardly prolific, but he had a habit of scoring goals in big games (the winning penalty in the 2007 Champions League semi-final, a header in the subsequent final, a goal in the 2012 Carling Cup final and a Luis Suarez-assisted hat-trick against Manchester United) and impressed fans with a frankly ludicrous work-rate.

He also earned the adulation of supporters by using his first ever touch as a Liverpool player to shoot: a volley that went wide against West Ham. Perhaps Kuty left Liverpool a year or two too soon.

Feyenoord are now the club benefitting from getting their Dirk out.
