Liverpool ace hopes to be fit for trip to former club

Published Add your comment

Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt is hopeful of being fit for the Reds' Europa League trip to his former club Utrecht at the end of this month.

The 30-year-old injured his shoulder during training with the Dutch national team this week and was on Tuesday ruled out for four weeks by club doctor Peter Brukner.

That would mean Kuyt missing the trip to the Stadion Galgenwaard, where he spent five years between 1998 and 2003, on September 30 as well as matches against Birmingham, Steaua Bucharest, Manchester United, Northampton and Sunderland.

But the striker remains optimistic he will be fit for the match in Holland.

He said on "I hope I will make it (for Utrecht) but it all depends on how the injury heals in the first few days."
