Dirk Kuyt has insisted the appointment of Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager had nothing to do with his decision to join Fenerbahce.

The Turkish giants announced the signing of the Holland striker on a three-year contract on Sunday, ending his six-year spell on Merseyside. The 31-year-old found first-team starts limited under Kenny Dalglish last season, and even the Scot's departure, and the arrival of Rodgers as his replacement on Friday, could not stop him leaving.

"After six years I am ready for a new challenge," Kuyt said on the website of his management, www.sport-promotion.nl. "The appointment of the new coach has nothing to do with it. But when Fenerbahce came to me and made their ambitions known, from the first moment I was sold. They give me the confidence that I lost."
