Ex-Liverpool star Dirk Kuyt bags brace for Fenerbahçe [divider]
Fenerbahçe forward Dirk Kuyt helped Fenerbahçe remain at the top of the Süper Lig after bagging a brace against Kasımpaşa.
The Yellow Canaries beat Kasımpaşa 3-1 away from home, ending Kasımpaşa’s unbeaten home record this season.
Kuyt opened the scoring from just outside the penalty area in the first half.
The 34-year-old doubled the Canaries lead on 70 minutes for his sixth goal of the season.
The former Netherlands international took to twitter after the game to congratulate his teammates for their performance against Kasımpaşa.
Kuyt tweeted: “Great team performance! Really happy with my 2 goals against Kasimpasa. #TopOfTheLeague!”
Kuyt now has 33 goals for Fenerbahçe since joining from Liverpool.
The former Netherlands international joined Fenerbahce from Liverpool in 2012 for €1 million.
Kuyt scored 71 times in 285 matches for the Reds and 24 goals in 104 international appearances for the Netherlands.
Fenerbahçe moved into first place on 39 points following the win. The victory was the Yellow Canaries sixth in a row.
The Turkish giants take on Karabükspor away from home next week.
