The Reds signed the 25-year-old from Olympiacos for a transfer fee of €13 million back in the summer of 2020.
Despite the fact that Tsimikas has only been at Anfield for just over a year, James believes that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has improved the Greece international.
James further added that Tsimikas' performances this season suggest that he has been a Red for three years.
James told Stadium Astro the following (03:37): “Tsimikas is probably the best example currently [of players Klopp has improved]. He starts this season as if he’s been here for three years! I was watching games and I’m like, ‘this guy…..I don’t recognise him.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Tsimikas is behind Andy Robertson in the pecking order.
Despite that being the case, the left-back has been given a decent opportunity to play for Liverpool's first-team in the early parts of the 2021-22 campaign.
As James has pointed out, Tsimikas has taken his opportunity well.
Hopefully Tsimikas can keep on performing well until the end of the season.
