Kuyt backs van Gaal for Liverpool

Published Add your comment

Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt believes compatriot Louis van Gaal has the ideal experience to be a success at Anfield.

The 60-year-old Dutchman has been heavily linked with the new technical director role introduced by owners Fenway Sports Group, although reports in Holland suggest he would be more interested in the vacant manager's job. Kuyt, currently on international duty preparing for Euro 2012, gave his backing to the former Ajax and Bayern Munich boss.

"It is not usual for players to speak about candidates, but he is a Dutchman, has a great track record and has the experience that the club could put to good use," he was reported as saying by Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.
