When asked if he would assign special attention to taking Steven Gerrard out of tomorrow’s Anfield clash, he surprised everyone with his answer.
He declared: “Gerrard? And what about Torres, Riera and Mascherano? That’s like saying my team is all about Lampard.
“Liverpool have fantastic players, the same as us. But the one player I like best you have not even mentioned! Dirk Kuyt is a player who is fantastic. When he was playing in Holland and I was with Portugal (he looks to the heavens), I said ‘Please, don’t play him’.”
