Kuyt vows to fight on

Published Add your comment

Dirk Kuyt has refused to give up on fifth place despite Liverpool slipping to a crucial defeat against Spurs yesterday.

The Reds made an unusually sluggish start and found themselves a goal down when Rafael Van der Vaart struck from distance. Luka Modric secured the win for the visitors with a controversial penalty, leaving the visitors in pole position to claim the only Europa League spot.

However, Dutch international Kuyt has refused to give up on overtaking Tottenham, and hopes Harry Redknapp's side slip-up in their final game against Birmingham City, a team fighting for survival.

Liverpool will be looking to take maximum points from the final outing at Aston Villa, but can be proud of their efforts should they finish sixth after a stunning turnaround under Kenny Dalglish.


"Obviously the result was very disappointing. We all hoped for a good result and a win, but it didn't happen," Kuyt told the official Liverpool website after the Sunday loss at Anfield.

"There's still one game to go and hopefully they (Spurs) will draw next week and we win and get into Europe next season.

"It's disappointing. We gave everything but it wasn't as good as the last couple of weeks."
