Kuyt urges Crouch to stick with Liverpool

Dirk Kuyt has urged Peter Crouch to stick with Liverpool after the England man expressed frustration with the lack of first team chances he's had this season.

"We understand why Peter was not happy recently, I believe it is something we would all feel if it happened to any of us," said Kuyt.

"But that does not mean we don't understand the reasons, it is just understandable that everyone always wants to play.

"We understand the problem and we try to help each other, we are all facing the same thing and there is a good relationship between the four strikers.

"This time it was me to be in the side and I scored two and helped create Peter's goal. I enjoyed it all, but I felt I could have done better and scored more."

He continued: "We are all trying to impress the manager, but this situation is also difficult for our opponents because they have no idea what pairing the manager will select for each match.

"We are all different and that does not help opponents prepare. But the boss made seven changes against Toulouse and it was clear that we are still a strong team, that is really all that matters.

"That is our strength for the season. And what was evident was that whoever plays they always know what to do and what their job is."
