Watch: ‘Kostas, f*cking hell!’ – Milner welcomes Tsimikas to Liverpool


James Milner gave Kostas Tsimikas a typically blunt welcome to Liverpool as the Reds beat Stuttgart 3-0 on Saturday in their first pre-season friendly ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Tsimikas, a new £11.75million signing from Olympiakos, was given his first run out in a Liverpool shirt as goals from Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita and Rhian Brewster saw off the German side.

The left-back has been signed to provide cover and competition for Andy Robertson, and we already like the look of him in terms of what he can bring to the sh*thouse stakes.

Put Tsimikas copped an earful when he failed to find Milner on the overlap, with the former England international audibly shouting: “Ahh, Kostas, f*cking hell!”
