Dirk Kuyt says leaving Liverpool is a difficult decision.

Kuyt has signed for Fenerbahce in the last 24 hours.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "It was a very difficult decision. I had six wonderful years at the club and it was a great honour for me to play for Liverpool Football Club, work with the great players and play in front of those wonderful supporters.

"After six years I have made a decision to go for another experience and that's why I made the choice to go to Fenerbahce."
