Kuyt wants starting place

Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt has admitted that he wants regular first-team football at Anfield next year.

The 31-year-old has made 35 appearances for the Reds this season - 14 of which coming from the bench - one being his extra time appearance in the Carling Cup final win over Cardiff City.

The Dutchman told The Daily Mirror: "I want to play every game. It is very disappointing when I don't.

"From my point of view I'm feeling really well physically, I don't think I've ever felt stronger, and I'm ready to play games, I am ready to play every game of the season.

"As long as I play as much as I want to play then I will be happy, but if it gets to the point where I am not playing every game anymore, then maybe I will have to make another decision - but I don't think about that at this stage."

Kuyt arrived from Feyenoord in 2006 for a reported fee of around £10million, but has been rotated this season with summer signing Jordon Henderson.

The wide man isn't completely disillusioned with how things are going at the club and is happy with the progress that Liverpool are making.

"We have a sense that we are coming to force, that we are building something special," he continued. "We have a sense that we can do something next season for sure, but we are still in this season, and we still have a chance."

Liverpool are 7th in the league - 10 points adrift of Arsenal in the final Champions League spot - with 10 games remaining.

They also have a second Wembley appearance lined up on the weekend of 14th and 15th April, against the winners of the FA Cup quarter-final replay between Everton and Sunderland.
