Feyenoord party after cup triumph
Fans used city centre fountains in Rotterdam to celebrate
Feyenoord might be well off the pace in the Dutch title race, but that did not stop fans and players celebrating in style as they won the Dutch Cup on Sunday.
Six years after captaining the Rotterdam club to Cup success, former Rangers, Arsenal and Barcelona star Giovanni van Bronckhorst was a winner again as Feyenoord coach as they beat Utrecht 2-1 with a 75th-minute own-goal sealing victory.
Fans hit the streets of Rotterdam to celebrate with some supporters leaping into a fountain in the centre of the city.
Meanwhile the players, including former Liverpool favourite Dirk Kuyt, upheld the club tradition of collecting the trophy wearing team dressing gowns.
