The best thing that could have happened for him. The worst thing that could have happened for Liverpool.
He's our absolute super sub. European teams have no idea what to do with him. He was so infinitely dangerous. He didn't have pace and wasn't a poacher, but for causing problems for defences, he was our key man. If he'd have been given time to learn to work with Torres, I think something magic could've happened.
As long as Benitez keeps playing Kuyt on the wing and Torres up front on his own, we're going to be about as threatening as a snail up front.
Kuyt's departure would have made my day.
