Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt has lavished praise on teammate Luis Suarez after the Uruguayan scored the winner against QPR, The
The 24 year old shut the negative press away for a week or so with the goal against Neil Warnock’s side and ended a run of poor form at Anfield for Liverpool. Suarez is facing a racism charge for words allegedly said to Manchester United’s Patrice Evra and also racked up a misconduct charge for a gesture made to Fulham fans at Craven Cottage last Monday. Suarez has until 4pm today to respond to the charge made against his gesture.
Kuyt has backed his teammate 100% through his turbulent two months and believes that the Uruguayan is one of the vital players in the Liverpool dressing room. Suarez now has eight in all competitions and Kuyt believes that Suarez’s goals are not as important as the work he does for the team.
The Dutchman said: ‘For all of us, it is important to score a goal, but especially for Luis, who played really well. It was good to see him scoring again. He is just focusing on the game and he is happy with all the support he gets from the club, players, manager and his own fans. He is a great professional and is just focusing on his job – that is what he does in training and in the game. Luis has done great so far’.
