Liverpool’s Dirk Kuyt keen to end league campaign on a high
Dirk Kuyt insists Liverpool want to finish their league campaign in a positive manner despite the distraction of an FA Cup final
Dirk Kuyt insists Liverpool are focused on ending their Premier League campaign on a positive note after a disappointing run which saw the Reds fall off the pace in the race for a fourth-place finish.
Kenny Dalglish’s side endured a run of just two victories in 10 games which left Liverpool 13 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
The Reds, who won the Carling Cup in February, booked their place in the FA Cup final on 5 May by beating Everton, but Kuyt is adamant Liverpool won’t neglect their final league games.
“We want to win every game that we have left in the league,” Kuyt told LFC Magazine.
“That’s still really important for us. We want to finish as well as we possibly can and if we can do that, we can take the momentum into next season.
“Sometimes we’ve been really close to winning games and we have felt that we’ve deserved to win them. But you can’t feel sorry for yourselves.
“At the end of the day you have to look forward and I think the way we played against Blackburn showed that we weren’t feeling sorry for ourselves.
“We can’t look back. We want to change things and we will be doing our best to try and do that. We will be more satisfied if we can win as many of our remaining games as possible and have a strong run-in and a strong finish.
“That is our target. We are playing for Liverpool Football Club and when you are doing that you have to win every game.”
