Dirk Kuyt: On almost shunning football for fishing, graft over glory, respect for Rafa - and drawing Chelsea in Europe
"Rafa first showed an interest in me when he was at Valencia and then he came for me once he had arrived at Liverpool", he says.
"He has also been very supportive, and even when I was having problems after my father died (of cancer two years ago) he told me he still believed in me. Everyone at the club was very supportive at that time. Everyone in the city too".
