Liverpool hero Molby: Kuyt would walk into Barcelona team

Liverpool icon Jan Molby believes Dirk Kuyt would walk into the Barcelona team.

Molby - who scored 61 goals in 292 games for Liverpool during the 1980s and early 1990s - is adamant Kuyt would be on the teamsheet.

Speaking to LFC TV, the Dane said: "As a player you look at someone and think 'Would I like to play against him?' And no, I wouldn't, because Dirk pesters and he's at you non-stop. He's running, he's working, he's closing you down.

"I think the training (under Kenny Dalglish) has really benefitted him. There are a lot more touches for individual players and Dirk's first touch has improved because of that.

"I always say this about him - and I mean it: he would walk into any team in the world. Because of the things he gives you.

"He wouldn't be their best footballer but I think he would play in Barcelona's team."
