Dirk Kuyt believes Liverpool are about to embark on an historic season.

And the Dutch forward is aware that with Javier Mascherano seemingly about to commit his future to the club, the Reds now have a stable squad with the vast majority on long-term deals.

"We have a sense now, a really strong belief, that we can go on and achieve what we want because the quality is there and the progress is there," said Kuyt, speaking in a Liverpool FC magazine interview.

"Throughout my career I have always had another dream and have achieved it. I will not stop dreaming until we get what we want with Liverpool, and that is the title.

"This team can be proud of itself and the way we played last season. We can hold our heads high.

"Last season we beat the biggest teams, Manchester United and Chelsea, twice each in the league.

"We can say that there were too many draws in the home games, but you have to learn from it because we are a young team."

Kuyt underlined his commitment to the Reds' cause by agreeing a two-year extension to his Anfield deal earlier this year.

By doing so, he joined the likes of Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres, Yossi Benayoun, Daniel Agger, Nabil El Zhar, Jay Spearing and Stephen Darby in committing his future to the club.

He said: "The team is getting more experience, and importantly, the players are now in it for the long term. Important players have agreed new contracts and they all believe they are part of something big. The belief is there."
