Liverpool's Kuyt: Positional change helped me

Dirk Kuyt admits playing wide-right has revived his prospects at Liverpool.

"I have had a difficult season and I have had to show character," admits Kuyt. "I had a few problems in the early part of the season and everyone knows what it was.

"I just tried to come through it and in the second half of the season I have played in a different position and I have just tried to give everything I can. It has gone well. I have given assists and I have scored some goals.

"The manager didn't need to persuade me over the position on the right. I have played in that position for years for Holland and when I started my career at Utrecht it was there also.

"I am not an out and out right-winger, I do it in my own way and that has helped me to continue scoring goals."
