Napoli left-back Andrea Dossena cannot wait to return to Anfield to face former team Liverpool in the Europa League this season.

Dossena left Merseyside in January to sign for Napoli after two seasons with the Reds. They host Liverpool on October 21 before travelling to England for the second meeting on November 4.

"The first thing that came to my mind after the draw is that I will return to Anfield Road," said Dossena. "The second is that I will finally have the possibility to show the Liverpool fans who the true Dossena is."

He added: "I'm excited about that meeting and I really want to play in that stadium.

"I feel a sense of revenge and rancour, I just want to play a great game."

Napoli have been drawn in Group K with Liverpool, Steaua Bucharest and Utrecht.
