Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp sees Paris Saint-Germain as "one of the most exciting teams in the world" and is looking forward to facing the Ligue 1 champions in the Champions League.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has described Paris Saint-Germain as "one of the most exciting teams in the world" and is looking forward to locking horns with the Ligue 1 champions in the Champions League.

Thursday's group stage draw saw the Reds handed a tough proposition in PSG as well as last season's Serie A runners-up Napoli and Red Star Belgrade in Group C.

Liverpool and PSG have so far avoided one another in the Champions League, with their last meeting coming in the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1997, the Reds losing the semi-final 3-2 on aggregate.

The draw pits Klopp against new PSG boss and fellow German Thomas Tuchel, who followed his compatriot at the helm of Borussia Dortmund and also managed Klopp's former side Mainz 05 after his departure.

"PSG are one of the most exciting teams in the world and I think their target is to win the Champions League, so that will be two interesting matches," Klopp told Sky Sports News.

"I am looking forward to watching PSG a bit more often, which is a very interesting project for sure over in France with Thomas Tuchel.

"Facing Neymar will be, for our Brazilian guys, like meeting a friend again and all that stuff. It's a big challenge, but for all the others it is a big challenge to face us."

Last season's runners-up dropped into pot three for Thursday's draw after Benfica came through qualification.
