Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt, these days of course featuring as a right-sided midfielder, has come under transfer speculation after admitting that he is a huge fan of the former Tottenham Hotspur manager Martin Jol.
Jol was sacked by Spurs earlier last season and is currently coaching the German Bundesliga giants SV Hamburg. Jol, a Dutchman, had a successful stay with Spurs in England, taking them to fifth-placed finishes in the English Premier League.
Although Kuyt is quite happy at Anfield, it is believed that manager Rafael Benitez’s habit of playing him out of his natural position as a striker is not going down too well with the former Feyenoord hitman. And now that Kuyt had admitted that he would like to work with Jol some time in the future, things might just assume a different hue for Liverpool.
This is what the Dutch international striker said:
“I am happy at Liverpool but Jol’s one of the best Dutch coaches and I’d possibly like to work with him in the future.”
So is Kuyt on his way out of Anfield? Let’s wait and watch.
