Liverpool’s recent run of results is all down to Dirk Kuyt’s iPod, the Dutchman has claimed.
Kuyt was recently installed as the club’s official matchday DJ – and he’s convinced this is the reason behind Liverpool’s seven-match unbeaten run.
The midfielder told the club’s website: “Ever since I’ve plugged my iPod into our music system and play the stuff I’ve collected at home for our games, we’ve not lost a game.
“I think we are all a bit superstitious as players. I took over from one of the lads and when they all like it, they let you be in charge.
“It is like taking a penalty. If you score, they all let you take the next one.
Kuyt’s playlist is reported to consist of the Kings of Leon, The Killers and Amy Winehouse. The players listen to it before going out for their final warm-up.
When they return, the Liverpool physio takes over – playing club anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone on his MP3 player.
