Dirk Kuyt scored a hat-trick as Feyenoord won the Eredivisie title

Dirk Kuyt says "everyone laughed" when he said Feyenoord could win their first Dutch title since 1999 when he returned to the club two years ago.

The 36-year-old is in his second spell with the club, after he left to join Liverpool in 2006.

And speaking after lifting the Eredivisie title on Sunday, Kuyt's quotes on the transformation Feyenoord have undergone proved the mentality required to succeed.

Thousands of fans in the city center watched on large screens and roared in delight after Kuyt's early opener and again 11 minutes later.

Dirk Kuyt started what could be his final match for Feyenoord in place of the suspended Tonny Vilhena, and the veteran proved to be the hero with a hat-trick which sealed a rather comfortable 3-1 win over Heracles.

But she said she didn't know if the White House took steps to restrict Flynn's access to sensitive or classified information. Yates then responded, "I don't know. but I don't think it would be a good idea, and that's not what I did in this case".

"My dream has come true", Kuyt told Fox Sports amid scenes of jubilation at Feyenoord's De Kuip stadium. The Amsterdam-based club will end their season with the Europa League final against Manchester United on May 24. Defending champion PSV Eindhoven finished third.

JUBILANT Feyenoord fans poured into the streets of Rotterdam a day after their club won the Dutch league title.

Last week, over 100 people were arrested after riots when Feyenoord was thrashed by lowly Excelsior, cutting their lead over arch rivals Ajax to one point. The club also is a two-time victor of the UEFA Cup, in 1974 and 2002.

"We do not really realise what we have achieved yet", Van Bronckhorst commented.
