Liverpool boss Klopp wary of Champions League group rivals Atalanta, Ajax

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes their Champions League group will be a tough test.

Liverpool discovered their fate in Thursday afternoon's draw when they were placed in Group D alongside Atalanta, Ajax and Midtjylland.

"All the teams who are in the draw, they are really good teams," said Klopp.

"Atalanta were the surprise team in Italy and have settled in that position - started really well again. Ajax is famous for sensational youth development and football.

There is extra pressure on Klopp to do well in the Champions League again this season after they squandered their chances to win the Carabao Cup.
