A true powerhouse in his field, Mr. Duracell, as he is called by his colleagues, always has the desire to progress. “I am a coach who likes to attack football with high intensity. In this respect, I think the Beerschot club suits me very well. “Blood on the uprights”, who gives everything to win a match, is who I am as a player. I was like this as a football player, but now I am like this as a coach.” explained the blond-haired man.

Dirk Kuyt has been a free agent since leaving Dutch club Ado la Haye, where he recorded five wins, four draws and eight defeats between July and November 2022. Before this experience in the Netherlands, he was the assistant coach of Quick Boys (2017-2018), then the coach of the Feyenoord Rotterdam U19 team (2018-2020).
