Liverpool will be the first team to play Zenit St Petersburg after some of the Russian club's fans declared publicly that they did not want any black players on their team.

The statement came from Landscrona, one of the most significant Zenit fans groups.

Liverpool says it now has major concerns about the possibility of its players being racially abused.
