Dirk Kuyt wants to see the San Siro heroes as Liverpool face another Italian job at Fiorentina


Dutch courage: Kuyt reckons the Reds can get a result in italy

Dirk Kuyt is confident Liverpool can get a result in Italy on Tuesday night as Rafa Benitez's men have done it before in the San Siro.

The Reds beat Inter Milan 1-0 on their last visit to the country in 2008 and Kuyt is expecting the same again when they face Fiorentina in Champions League Group E.

'It was a great night in the San Siro,' Kuyt told Liverpool's website. 'I enjoyed every minute of it and hopefully we can do the same against Fiorentina.

'All the teams in our group are good but Italian teams are normally very strong in defence and it can be difficult to go there. Having said that, it will be the same with the trips to Lyon and Debrecen.

'It will be great if we can win in Florence and get six points from the first two games. It would give us more confidence ahead of the other group games.'

What a result: Fernando Torres scored the winner against Inter

Kuyt scored the only goal in the opening home win over Debrecen - the 29-year-old Holland international becoming the club's third highest European Cup goalscorer.

'It's great to be important to the club and score important goals in Europe,' he said. 'Hopefully there will be more in the future and I can go higher in the list.

'It's not the most important thing for me though, doing well for Liverpool is what matters most of all.'
