Alonso or Kuyt?
Peter Crouch talks about a curious kart story. In the end, the Englishman must decide whether to detour Xabi Alsonso or Dirk Kuyt.
Former English international Peter Crouch faced a serious dilemma before the Champions League final in 2007.
While karting with Liverpool FC in Portugal, the striker noticed that his brakes were defective and had to decide which team-mate he would be better able to drive around in view of the upcoming final.
“I drove into the pits and found that the brakes were not working. I saw Xabi Alonso and Dirk Kuyt standing in front of me, I knew I was going to meet one of them and thought: Who is more valuable? so I drove up to Kuyt and he luckily managed to jump out of the way,”Crouch told FourFourTwo magazine.
The kart hit a wall and went up in flames,”said Crouch. Liverpool lost the Champions League final to AC Milan in Athens 1-2. Kuyt scored the only goal of the Reds. Crouch was found in 78. minute.
