Ragnar Klavan handed shirt number and declares: Liverpool the place to be!

Liverpool have handed new signing Ragnar Klavan the No17shirt.

Klavan takes the number vacated earlier this week by new teammate and fellow defender Mamadou Sakho.

The Estonia defender has joined the Reds today from FC Augsburg.

When asked how playing in front of the Kop compares to running out at other stadiums, Klavan told LFC TV: "I think it's more the feeling you get when you walk on the pitch.

"It's a compact stadium, but there's so much history in there, this is what excites me more.

"These days a lot of teams have really new stadiums which look good and everything is clean; but Anfield, it's not the newest, but it's the place to be."
