Liverpool legend Dirk Kuyt set for management role alongside former Manchester United striker

Liverpool legend Dirk Kuyt is set to be appointed as the manager of Eredivisie side Feyenoord.

Reports from Dutch Publication De Telegraaf indicates that Kyut will be working alongside former Manchester United striker Henrik Larsson.

The club is currently being managed by Dutch tactician Dirk Advocaat although there have been reports that the former Sunderland man might be shown the door as the club looks for an overhaul.

According to journalist Valentijn Driessen, the departure of assistant Said Bakkati to FC Cincinnati is the first step in a bigger re-jig, which would see Advocaat replaced by Kuyt, despite the former being under contract until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Kuyt is no stranger at Feyenoord as he has previously coached their U19 side this after he and Larsson spent their playing days at the club.

Kuyt left Feyenoord in 2006 to join English giants Liverpool and went on to make 285 appearances in six years at Anfield, scoring 71 goals; the player being a cult hero for the club during his stay in England.

He was to leave Anfield for Turkish giants Fenerbahce in 2012 before returning to Feyenoord three years later where he would spend two seasons before retiring in 2017.
