Liverpool left-back Konstantinos Tsimikas has opened up about his time at Anfield today after speaking with the club’s official website.
The Greek international defender and former Olympiacos standout moved to Merseyside in the summer of 2020, having made just six-appearances since his ~£12million move from Erythrolefki which made him only the second Greek to ever feature for Liverpool along with Sotirios Kyrgiakos.
Tsimikas was raised in a family of Liverpool supporters, and the Thessaloniki-native spoke on the feeling of making their dreams come through via his achievement;
Now capped 13-times by Greece since 2018, the former Greek Footballer of the Year (2019-20) also spoke on the surprise of many given the nature of his move to Anfield given the massive jump given the differences between the Greek Super League and the Premier League;
‘Greek Scouser’ nickname and a commitment to be prepared
There are few more passionate and focal grounds than Anfield, thanks to the wildly devoted fanbase that Liverpool proudly boasts in one of the hardest stadiums to play in anywhere in Europe.
But for Kostas Tsimikas, the nickname bestowed upon him by the Anfield faithful is a source of strength and happiness.
Additionally, Tsimikas commented on the nature of his commitment to always be prepared to show boss Jürgen Klopp what he can do;
Though he remains firmly behind Andrew Robertson for the starting left-back birth at the club, Tsimikas certainly does not seem unhappy in the red half of Merseyside.
