Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has welcomed their Europa League draw.

The Reds will take on Romanian side Steaua Bucharest, Dutch outfit Utrecht and Italian Serie A side Napoli in Group K.

Reflecting on the draw, Hodgson told Liverpoolfc.tv: "I think it's quite good but obviously there are no easy games at this stage of the competition.

"It's very much like the Champions League these days and when you get to the group stages they are all pretty good teams in there, but I am satisfied we have avoided maybe some of the least pleasant journeys.

"The three teams we will play are all good quality teams but the journeys make the tie much more attractive.

"With teams like Steaua Bucharest and Napoli in particular you've got teams I am sure are going to excite the Liverpool public."
