Player Profile

Konstantinos Tsimikas became Liverpool's first signing in the 2020/21 summer transfer-window, arriving to provide quality back up for Andy Robertson at left back. He had just won the Greek title with Olympiacos and gained valuable experience in the Champions League and Europa League. Appearances were limited during his first season as a central defensive injury crisis led to Jurgen Klopp sticking with Andy Robertson at left-back to provide some experience and stability. This limited Tsimikas to just two very late substitute appearances in the Premier League and three starts in cup competitions. However, like others before him under Klopp, he used the time out of the side to learn what was expected and when Robertson was ruled out of the opening two games of 2021/22, the manager had now hesitation in selecting Tsimikas. A certified FA Cup legend after his deciding penalty in the shoot-out in the final against Chelsea in May 2022.
