Back in the day, Dirk Kuyt used to score 30+ goals a season in the Dutch league as a striker, he’s now playing left back….

“My name is Dirk Kuyt and I’m arguably the most useless Dutch player to ever start in a World Cup” smh

To be fair to Dirk Kuyt, it seems like he’s ideally suited to left-back. Just miscontrol the football and kick it as hard as you can.
