Liverpool hero Kuyt: Gerrard best I played with

Liverpool hero Dirk Kuyt has hailed for his former captain Steven Gerrard.

The 34-year-old forward spent six years at Anfield having joined from Feyenoord in 2006.

Kuyt was supposed to be part of a Liverpool charity match between a Jamie Carragher XI and a Gerrard XI but has pulled out due to injury.

He told The Sun: "I have had time on the pitch with some greats - Luis Suarez, Arjen Robben, Robin van Persie, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Fernando Torres. All fantastic players but for me Gerrard was the best of them all.

"Steven saw I would do everything for my team. In my first season there I played as a second striker and scored 14. But the next year we signed Torres and I moved out to the right. I did that without any problems and Steven liked that."
