Dirk Kuyt has hinted that he is keen for Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish to take full-time charge of the resurgent Reds.
Liverpool have taken 20 points from a possible 30 in the Barclays Premier League since Dalglish was temporarily handed the reigns in January and have played with a sense of adventure seemingly not afforded to them under Roy Hodgson's stewardship.
The list of players - past and present - to lend their backing to Dalglish appears to be growing by the day, and - despite going out of the Europa League - Kuyt is hopeful the Scot's future can be resolved sooner rather than later.
"As soon as things are ready, it is better for everyone. We saw that when the new owners came in. The manager has done a great job so far. We have played really well," he said.
"It's disappointing that we were knocked out of Europe, but the way we responded, not only the players, but the management, was terrific.''
