Dirk Kuyt has welcomed the appointment of Kenny Dalglish as new Liverpool manager.

Kuyt thinks that the new boss can turn their fortunes around.

The Dutchman told Liverpool's official website: "Kenny Dalglish is a legend and a very important man for this club. I think it says everything about him as a man that he is here to help us and put us back where we belong.

"It is very sad that Roy (Hodgson) has gone because you can never just blame one man. We must all take the blame and perform better.

"It's disappointing to lose a manager like that but a very big plus that we can bring in someone like Kenny. He is a very experienced man and someone who can have a positive impact on the squad.

"The most important thing is to make Liverpool a winning team again."
