Kuyt backs Liverpool's Torres for Player of Year

Dirk Kuyt believes Liverpool teammate Fernando Torres is an early contender for this season's Player of the Year.

The Dutchman said: "Torres is having an unbelievable season especially as he's coming from a foreign country and not speaking English very well.

"He's definitely a quality player and one of the best players in the league at the moment. He's one of the best in Europe.

"He's got everything, he's really quick and he's got a good finish and great ability. He's frightening for defenders to deal with.

"Definitely Fernando and Stevie G have a chance to be footballers of the year. They've done really good things this year for Liverpool."
