Lucas and Kuyt dish some dirt on team-mates

From Soccer AM on Sky Sports in March 2010 - Teammates

 

BEST TRAINER
Luca Leiva: Dirk Kuyt. He's one of the best trainers for me, in my opinion.

Dirk Kuyt : Well, then for me it's Lucas Leiva! Easy Question.


WORST TRAINER
DK: For me it was definitely when Pennant was still here, he was the worst trainer. But now I think everyone tries to do their best in training.

LL: Yeah Pennant was the worst, ever!


BIGGEST MOANER
DK: Daniel Agger. When things are not going his way he's always angry, but I think that's also so good because he's a great professional and he wants to do everything perfect.

LL: Yeah, when it's not perfect he just kicks the ball and starts shouting.


HARDMAN
DK: It must be Soto (Sotirios Kyrgiakos).

LL: Yeah Soto, 100%! Do you remember the first time in training? He just kicked me and Dirk said to me 'Welcome!', so I think it has to be Kyrgiakos.


SLOWEST
LL: Erm...it could be me! No, normally it's the keeper isn't it?

DK: No, Pepe Reina is pretty quick, but maybe one of the 'keepers yeah. I know when Alonso was here he was the slowest...

LL: Maybe Plessis?

DK: Yeah, maybe Plessis as well.


MOST SKILLFUL
LL: I don't know if he's the most skillful player, but he always tries to do tricks and things - Philipp Degen.

DK: Yeah, he's always trying but he's not the most skillful!

LL: We don't have a player with a lot of skill...

DK: Yeah, but I think Yossi is the most skillful player.


FUTURE MANAGER
LL: I think Carra (Jamie Carragher), no?

DK: Yeah, I would like to see him.

LL: He's studying to be a manager in the future.

DK: I don't know if he would want to be a manager, but I think definitely he could be a good manager.


WORST DANCER
LL: As I said before, probably me! I have no idea how to dance...

DK: Or sing.

LL: Hey, you too my friend!


AND WHO'S THE LONGEST IN THE SHOWER
LL: I don't know who's the longest in the shower, but in front of the mirror it's Fernando (Torres) for sure. Always with the hair...
