Kuyt Signs 4 Year Deal

He'll Be Number 18

Dutch international Dirk Kuyt reflected on his dream move to Liverpool and declared: "It is a special feeling to be here." Rafael Benitez's new signing said he can't wait to get started in a red shirt and revealed he had no hesitation once Liverpool came in for him.

"I think Liverpool is a fantastic club with a lot of great history and it really is a dream to sign for them," enthused Kuyt. "There were other clubs from England interested in me but Liverpool gave me that special feeling to make me want to play for them. I have said all along the only club I would have left Feyenoord for is Liverpool and I'm really happy to be here.

"It really is a big honour for me to play for Liverpool. I watched a lot of Liverpool matches on the television in Holland. I watched the Champions League final which was the most crazy match I've ever seen!

It was great for Liverpool to win it and always when Liverpool play in finals they are crazy matches like the FA Cup and UEFA Cup in 2001.

"I have always loved watching Liverpool play. I won't lie and say I have been a fan since I was two years old but this is a special club with a lot of history that I admire very much. It is a dream to play for them."

Kuyt also revealed he won't set himself any personal goal targets but promised he would give his all for Liverpool. "I won't say I'm going to score 20 or 30 goals this season as for me the most important thing is the team wins and I am a player that wants to win trophies with this club," added the new Reds number 18.

"I can make goals as well as scoring them and I don't feel any extra pressure as I'm used to it."

Kuyt + Crouch = Most ugly strikeforce, EVER.

I really hope he doesn't turn into another Kezman. But yea, since Rafa is after him for 2 years, shouldn't be that bad anyway. 4 strikers for 2 spots, tough choice!
