Dirk Kuyt joins Twitter, backs Dalglish for job

Dirk Kuyt has publicly backed Kenny Dalglish to be given the Liverpool manager’s job on a permanent basis beyond the end of the season.

Kuyt, who has joined social networking site Twitter to keep fans updated with news on himself and his charity, the Dirk Kuyt Foundation, described Dalglish as a “legend”, saying he is already learning a lot from the caretaker boss.

Kuyt’s username on Twitter is @Dirk_18_Kuyt and has already acquired over 30,000 followers.

The Dutch international has enjoyed improved and impressive form of late, since Dalglish took over from Roy Hodgson in the Anfield hot seat a month ago.

“I am really happy with Kenny,” Kuyt told Sky Sports. “So far it’s really positive for us.

“From the first day he came in he gave us a lot of belief and he said we were all quality players and he was there to help us and it is really true.

“It has worked well with him but also with Steve Clarke, everything looks much better and that is really positive for us.

Agreeing with Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher’s opinion that Dalglish should be offered the job permanently by the club from the summer, Kuyt agreed and added: “He is a legend not only for supporters but also for players and obviously as a player he has helped me as a striker a lot, he is very helpful for me.”
