Ragnar Klavan has revealed that the decision to join Cagliari was made easy by a number of his ex-Liverpool team-mates.

Klavan moved to the Serie A outfit this summer bringing to an end a two-season stint at Anfield in which he failed to feature regularly.

Now, the Estonia international has revealed that he asked several familiar names about whether the mood was a good idea.

“I had offers from several teams, including in other countries, but Cagliari really wanted me,” the centre-back told Sky Sport Italia.

“[Darijo] Srna advised me to come here, as I talked to him via Dejan Lovren. Other Liverpool teammates like Alisson, Salah and Lucas Leiva all spoke highly of Serie A.

“I’m certain we’ll do great things here and I am really fired up. The city is wonderful and so are the fans.”
