Anfield Watch Verdict
'The Greek Scouser' had probably his best game in a Liverpool shirt last night. His two assists and overall performance are a massive reason why Liverpool are in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Speaking about his performance after the game, Tsimikas said that he was 'very happy'.
"I’m very, very happy. I’m very happy for the two assists. My hard work pays off. This gives me extra motivation to keep working hard and do exactly that, play for this team. I always enjoy it when I play for this family. I’m very happy."
It's great to see Tsimikas thriving at Liverpool. He had a tough first season at the club but this campaign he has become a fan favourite and he's clearly a big personality in the dressing room.
Unfortunately for him, he has the best left-back in world football ahead of him but luckily, with Liverpool now having a squad capable of challenging on every front, he's still going to get more than enough game time in a red shirt!
