Ecstatic Dirk Kuyt describes “perfect” day

Dirk Kuyt says scoring a hat-trick against Manchester United is “the best feeling ever,” descirbing today’s 3-1 victory over Liverpool’s arch rivals as “perfect”.

Kuyt was the hero of the hour, scoring all three of Liverpool’s goals as the Reds swept aside the league leaders at Anfield.

“It’s perfect,” Kuyt told Sky Sports after the game. “You dream about the hat-trick and to do it against United is the best feeling ever. I’m more than happy but I have to thank Luis because he played great and created two of the goals.

“They were quite easy goals, I used to score them in Holland when I played more like a striker. They count and I’m more than happy to take them.”

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish would not be drawn on Jamie Carragher’s tackle on Nani that saw the United winger stretchered off.

“I think he was fortunate to be playing for Liverpool today,” Dalgish said when asked if his player was lucky not to be sent off.

“It’s not correct to talk about incidents because the match was played in a great spirit.”
