Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt is looking forward to a “historic” Champions League final meeting with rivals Manchester United in Athens.

He told BBC Sport: “Milan and Manchester United are two great teams and clubs.

“But a meeting between two big clubs from the Premiership in the Champions League final would be historic.”

Liverpool won their semi-final second leg clash at Anfield 1-0 thanks to Daniel Agger’s first-half strike, before winning the tie on a penalty shootout.

“It is fantastic for us to reach the Champions League final,” added Kuyt. “There is no bigger game in European club football and to do it in my first season here is an amazing feeling.

“We felt we deserved to win after the 90 minutes and extra time. We were very strong and to see that last penalty go in was a great feeling.

“It is just fantastic for us. We had chances. I hit the post and had a goal disallowed, but we got there in the end and Pepe Reina was sensational for us in the penalty shoot-out.

“You come to clubs like Liverpool for nights like this.

“We wanted to do it for our fans as well because they were fantastic in the way they supported us.

“We have beaten some very strong teams to get to the final, like Barcelona, PSV Eindhoven and now Chelsea.

“It is not up to us who we play, Manchester United and Milan have to fight for their place, but certainly two English clubs playing each other would be history.

“Now we have to get ready for the final because we want to win it now. We have come this far so we want to win it and we think we can.

“We have shown we can win over two legs against the best sides, now it is down to one match.”
