On Monday, Kostas Tsimikas signed a new and improved contract with Liverpool, tying him to the club until the summer of 2027.
The Greek must come to terms with being second-choice left-back, but he did not need long to think when the offer of a new deal came along.
– Yes, it was a very easy decision. When both parties want it, me and the team, things become much easier. I wanted to stay here from the beginning, and I love everything here: the people, every day I see the training ground I feel happy, the players, the support staff, everyone. Even the weather makes me feel better. As I said, I am very, very happy He tells Liverpoolfc.com.
Tsimikas is now 27 years old and will be 31 when his contract expires.
– This is the right club, because they trust me. I always give everything I have when I play for the team. “I try to help everyone when I play, and even when I’m not playing, I feel important to the players and the overall mood in the group,” he says.
– I’m very happy to be here, and for me it seems like the right step for me to sign a longer contract and stay here.
He has now been a Liverpool player for three years following his move from Olympiacos in 2020.
– Everything makes this club so special, especially when we won the cups and had the show two years ago. Everyone in the team was unhappy about us losing the Champions League final and finishing second in the league, but for the fans, we could see how happy they were at the show with us when we celebrated and that was an extra motivation for us. Let’s forget the stupid things.
Tsimikas has played 63 games for the Reds so far. The highlight came when he scored the decisive penalty kick in the FA Cup final against Chelsea.
