Liverpool ace Dirk Kuyt has admitted a frustrating time this season.

He admits he had found it tough after losing his place in the starting line-up.

"It is very difficult, I am the type of player who needs games in a row," said the Holland international.

"The more minutes I play the better I feel and I have been used to playing every game for the last 10 years of my career.

"Obviously I just want to play every game and I have to try to prove that to manager every time I play.

"It is the manager's decision and you have to respect that, especially when the manager is Kenny Dalglish."
