Fenerbahçe winger Dirk Kuyt paid tribute to the 96 victims of the Hillsborough disaster today underlined that those who lost their lives will never be forgotten.
Kuyt tweeted: “We will never forget. #JFT96 #YNWA.”
The former Liverpool star also shared three images in memory of the tragedy including a banner displaying all 96 names of the children, men and women that lost their lives.
The hashtag #JFT96 is in reference to the victims’ families who have fought ever since to find out exactly what happened.
Ninety-six children, men and women lost their lives at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough stadium on April 15, 1989.
A further 766 people suffered injuries in what was the worst stadium-related disaster in British history.
The police were primarily blamed for the incident and following a tireless campaign led by bereaved families and survivors, the High Court quashed the original accidental death verdicts and ordered new inquests in 2012.
The former Netherlands international moved to Liverpool in 2006 and scored 71 goals in 285 matches for the Reds.
The Netherlands international played in the the 2006-07 Champions League final, was runner up in the 2008-09 Premier League title race and won the 2011-12 League Cup with Liverpool.
