Dirk Kuyt leaves fans shocked following incredible transformation, aged 40

Liverpool fans have been shocked by former striker Dirk Kuyt’s brand-new look – with the former Netherlands man ditching his iconic curls.

Kuyt became a cult hero during his six-year stay at Anfield and helped the club win a League Cup in 2011.

His tireless work ethic was something appreciated on Merseyside as was his long, curled hair.

But an appearance on Sky Sports News has seen fans wonder what has happened to the real Kuyt.

Wearing a formal turtleneck sweater with smart, pushed back hair, Kuyt looks completely different to his playing days.

Fans have reacted to the 40-year-old’s changes and they’re convinced he’s been replaced with somebody else.
