Kuyt agent: Istanbul more beautiful than Liverpool

The agent of Dirk Kuyt says the Dutchman swapped Liverpool for Fenerbahce in part because of lifestyle.

Kuyt has joined Fener in the last 24 hours in a £1 million deal.

Agent Rob Jansen says finances were not decisive.

"Dirk really wanted to play in Europe and preferably the Champions League," he told De Telegraaf.

"Fenerbahçe is a club where each season they fight for the title. It is a mega-club. If people wonder why he is going to Istanbul, then they've never been there. Istanbul is a metropolis which is more beautiful than Liverpool."
