Udinese defender Andrea Coda is excited to be playing at Europa League opponents Liverpool.

Coda has admitted he has 'dreamed' of playing at Anfield, as the Zebrette travel to Liverpool in the Europa League.

"Liverpool are a historic team," he told Tuttoudinese.it. "It is a fantastic stadium that when you're a child, you dream of playing in.

"The game mitigates somewhat the failure to qualify for the Champions League. We are ready for the challenge. We have a tough group, but is an important competition that must be honoured."
