Player profile

Estonia's national team captain Ragnar Klavan was 30 years old when he joined Liverpool from Augsburg in the summer of 2016, signed by Jurgen Klopp to provide defensive cover after the departure of Martin Skrtel. He broke into his local side Viljandi at the age of 16 in 2002 and the following year joined Flora Tallinn, where he won the Estonian title. After a brief loan spell with Norwegians Valerenga he joined Eredivise side Heracles Almelo in 2005 and moved four years later to AZ Alkmaar, where he won the Dutch title playing for Steve McClaren. Klavan moved to the Bundesliga to play for Augsburg in 2012 and played both legs of the Europa Cup tie between them and Liverpool in February 2016. His first appearance in a Reds shirts was against Chelsea in a friendly in Los Angeles on 27th July 2016, but it was anything but that when he was the subject of a two footed challenge by Cesc Fabregas but escaped  injury. After impressing in pre season he took advantage of an injury to Joel Matip and was picked in the starting eleven for the opening league game away to Arsenal.
