​Klopp wary of Kazan threats

Jurgen Klopp has warned his Liverpool side of the dangers posed by Rubin Kazan ahead of their meeting in the Europa League on Thursday.

Klopp has been impressed so far with the facilities in Tatarstan but is wary of taking the home side lightly.

Speaking ahead of the match Klopp told reporters: "We are not here for visiting Kazan and I hope you will see that tomorrow, (but) it's very comfortable. The dressing room is much bigger than at Liverpool!"

"I haven't seen the pitch and that's the most important thing in the stadium. We have to go out and see how it is and train, then we'll know more about it.

"When I prepare my team for a very important game, like it is tomorrow, I only watch the game and the style of the other team and not a single player, so I don't think about one player.

"They have a few young players in the squad that I didn't know before, but now I know them."
