When Liverpool FC signed Andy Robertson from relegated Hull City for around nine million euros in July 2017, not everyone was enthusiastic - the then inconspicuous Scot is now one of the best left-backs in the world.

Now the Reds have again signed a left-back that not everyone had on the slip: Kostas Tsimikas (24) comes from Olympiacos Piraeus and is supposed to relieve Robertson. The three-time Greek international, who received a "long-term" contract - supposedly until 2025 - is only a little more expensive than Robertson at the time, at a rumored 13 million euros.

With this, Jürgen Klopp has closed one of his positions, for which Jamal Lewis (22) from relegated Norwich City was also under discussion. Now Liverpool's championship coach is "very happy" with the signing of Tsimikas, "whom we have been watching for a long time".

In the past season, the full-back played a whopping 46 competitive games for Olympiakos, which became champions again after three years. "He's a very good footballer," said Klopp, "and I really like his mentality. It fits the mood and the will in our dressing room perfectly."

Tsimikas has already gained international experience - and has big goals

After his debut for Olympiakos in 2015, Tsimikas gained international experience as a loan player in Esbjerg, Denmark (January to June 2017) and in Tilburg, Netherlands (2017/18). The leap into the Premier League makes him "very happy" and "very proud", with Liverpool he wants to "win the championship title and the Champions League again".

"I don't think until now my brother didn't believe that I was really here. If he sees the pictures now, he will understand that I actually signed and be very happy."
