Aussie keeper claims Eredivisie title with Feyenoord

Think Leicester's title victory was romantic? You haven't heard about Feyenoord's fairytale

The Eredivisie title, the first for the club since 1999, gives Feyenoord direct entry into next season's Champions League competition, which will bring in some €12m in television rights, plus up to a further €9m in the group stage.

Kuyt, the former Liverpool striker, settled any nerves early on when he pounced on a defensive mistake to score the opener after 38 seconds.

What a weekend it's been for Dirk Kuyt, who melted the hearts of Liverpool fans all over the world with his match-winning heroics in Holland. A stunning hat-trick from Dirk Kuyt ensured a comfortable 3-1 against Heracles to hold off Ajax Amsterdam.

"My dream has come true", Kuyt told Fox Sports amid scenes of jubilation at Feyenoord's De Kuip stadium.

Ajax, which secured a spot in the Europa League final on Thursday, started the day one point behind Feyenoord and beat Willem II Tilburg 3-1 to remain second.

The Rotterdam club haven't won the title since the turn of the century, with Kuyt's return after nine years away providing the boost they needed. That was four years before he even joined the club.

After drinking their fill of fizzy pop, the Feyenoord team and their victorious coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst then reconvened to show off their new trinket to the legions of fans gathered on the Coolsingel, slap, bang in front of the town hall...

"I have sacrificed a lot of money returning to Feyenoord, but it is worth every penny", he said after victory over Heracles Almelo.
