Kuyt uncertain over Anfield future

Dirk Kuyt expects Rafael Benitez to remain at Liverpool but admits he does not know who will be leaving Anfield this summer.

Liverpool have endured a disappointing season and, with substantial debts and no Champions League football next season, there are widespread reports that Benitez could be set to leave along with the likes of Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard.

With the club up for sale, Kuyt admits the future remains unclear, but he believes Benitez is likely to stay and hopes new owners will come in to provide the funds needed to strengthen ahead of next season.

"The manager has four years left on his contract so I don't expect him to leave unless something else happens," Kuyt said. "In football, you can never be sure what is happening and at this time we know the club looks very bad.

"We are looking for new owners and you don't know which players are going to stay or go, but Liverpool is a club with a great history and great supporters and we have to stay close together and fight really hard.

"Every player is interested in what is going on but, if I am honest, I can't blame that side of things for some of our performances.

"For me the most important thing is keeping the main players. Hopefully we can then buy a few more key players and start winning trophies."
