Kuyt: Reds aiming to fly high

The Dutch ace recently agreed a one-year contract extension to

remain at Anfield until 2013. The Holland international, who joined

the Reds from Feyenoord in 2006, believes the Reds can push on

under new boss Kenny Dalglish and owners Fenway Sports Group. He

said: “I signed up (to a new contract) because I have faith in the

club. “Everything I noticed shows the ambitions are high. The

appointment of Steve Clarke, assistant to (Jose) Mourinho at

Chelsea, is one example. Just a very good on-the-pitch coach. That

sort of thing. “The club strives again to get to a level that suits

the club. “I feel that I am at one of the top clubs in Europe. The

goal is still to become champions and win cups, and I will help.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool have announced they will be playing a Malaysia

XI on Saturday, July 16, during the club’s Asia tour. The match at

the Bukit Jalil National Stadium in Kuala Lumpur will kick-off at

5.45pm local time.
