Dirk Kuyt feels he leaves Liverpool in good hands with manager Brendan Rodgers now in charge. Kuyt has signed for Fenerbahce in the last 24 hours.

"I think it's great for the club that they have finally announced the new manager," Kuyt told liverpoolfc.tv.

"From what I have heard from Michel Vorm, who is with me in the national team, he is a great manager and he told me he will be perfect for Liverpool and he will definitely lift the club up to a higher state."

He added: "I would also like to say my decision to leave Liverpool was nothing to do with the new manager coming in whatsoever. I just had the feeling that I had to go somewhere else for a new experience after six years. I made the decision but it's not about the new manager. I have great memories from my experience with the club."
