Dirk Kuyt has revealed how he and his family are so settled in Liverpool that Scouse is the main dialect spoken in their household.
The Dutch forward was eager to immerse himself in the culture of both the club and the city after arriving on Merseyside from Feyenoord in August 2006.
Three-and-a-half years and 178 appearances for the Reds later, Kuyt admits he and his family feel like adopted Scousers.
He explains: "When I moved to England with my family we tried to keep Dutch as our main language in the house. But that has been impossible.
"My eldest daughter Noelle is fluent in English now. In fact, it's not so much English she speaks as Scouse.
"What makes it even madder is that she talks in a genuine local dialect.
"Scousers talk with some sounds that are similar to Dutch and my daughter is a proper Scouser.
"When we go on holiday she has to speak in a proper English accent so people can understand her. It cracks me up, it is so funny. I must admit that I have become a bit of a Scouser too. I keep noticing I think in English, I count in English.
"Our youngest kids Roan and Jordan have English names and because they were born in Liverpool - they are genuine Scousers.
"We all feel so much at home here. We hardly ever visit Holland these days."
The vernacular isn't the only thing the Kuyt family have taken a shine to as Dirk reveals they are also partial to a bit of local cuisine.
He added: "My food tastes are still very Dutch and my friend Willem brings me my favourite things over from my home village every week.
"But in our house I am the fish and chips man. Every Friday I bring chips for the family.
"I have to stick with the pasta because we usually have a game the next day, but when the match against Spurs was called off recently I got stuck in as well."
Kuyt has struck up a special relationship with Liverpool supporters since moving to Anfield - a bond treasured by the Holland international.
"The fans at Liverpool illustrate what the club is about," he said. "I've been to a few clubs and in the bad times you get nothing but flak.
"But here? The fans of Liverpool tell you to keep going. They wish you all the best even when things are going badly and you know they are hurting. Amazing."
