Kuyt admits that Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard was best he ever played with [divider]
Fenerbahçe winger Dirk Kuyt has revealed that Steven Gerrard is the best player he has ever played on the same team with.
Kuyt has played along some of the greats of the modern game including Arjen Robben, Luis Suarez and Robin van Persie but underlined that playing alongside Gerrard trumped them all.
“I have had time on the pitch with some greats – Luis Suarez, Arjen Robben, Robin van Persie, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Fernando Torres. All fantastic players but for me Gerrard was the best of them all,” Kuyt was quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.
The former Netherlands international is going to miss the chance to play alongside Gerrard again in the Liverpool FC All-Star charity game.
Kuyt picked up an injury during the Istanbul derby between Fenerbahçe and Beşiktaş ruling him out of the friendly game.
The 34-year-old had been picked alongside fellow Fenerbahçe teammate Raul Meireles to feature in the charity match.
Kuyt scored 71 goals in 285 matches for the Liverpool and 24 goals in 104 international appearances.
