Kuyt rubbishes exit fears for Liverpool teammate Torres

Dirk Kuyt insists there's nothing wrong with Liverpool teammate Fernando Torres.

Torres set up both of Liverpool's goals in their 2-2 draw against Sunderland on Saturday and Kuyt is confident he will soon find the target again.

"Everyone is expecting goals from Fernando but he offers a lot more. Against Sunderland he was responsible for setting up the two goals," said Kuyt, who scored a controversial opener at Anfield.

"He is very important for the team even if he is not scoring goals. I'm sure his goals will come.

"His mood has never changed. If you are a striker, and the type of striker Fernando is, you want to be involved in goals.

"But everyone could see how happy he was to have set up two goals.

"When you are one of the world's best strikers everyone is watching you so if they get a moment to blame him they will.

"And if you are not winning games he is not happy, I am not happy and the team is not happy.

"But we all know next week he could score a hat-trick and then everything changes."
