Dirk Kuyt wants to enjoy reaching the semi-finals of the Europa League before he thinks about the final.

Fenerbahce striker Dirk Kurt has refused to get carried away with his side's chances of reaching the Europa League final.

The Turkish side beat Lazio 3-1 on aggregate to book their place in the semi-finals and Kuyt said that the overriding emotion in the wake of the result is pride.

"[The final is] getting closer and closer and people are already starting to ask about tickets, but that's not the way I think," UEFA.com quotes Kurt as saying.

"I think one step at a time. Today it was a very big step because it was a very difficult game for us, but we survived it because of a very good result last week.

"Still, when they scored it was very difficult and we knew if we could score a goal, we would make it a lot easier for ourselves and that's what we did, so we're very happy and proud."

Fenerbahce could face Chelsea, Basel or Benfica in the semi-finals.
