Klopp on his delight at 'Tsimi' signing for LFC
As you're probably aware by now, Liverpool have just announced their first signing of the summer transfer window in Kostas Tsimikos.
The 24 year old played over 80 times for Olympiacos and moves to Anfield for £11.7 million, on a 5-year deal. The left-back will add real depth to a position where we've relied heavily on Andy Robertson for the past two seasons.
And the boss is delighted with the signing, telling Liverpoolfc.com: "We have watched Kostas for a long time and are really happy that he has joined us. It’s the perfect news before we come back together very soon.
"He is a very good footballer with an attitude to win and to compete, and I really like his mentality. It fits perfectly with the mood and the desire we have in our dressing room already.
"He has showed already at a young age he can experience football in a different country and do well - and he has been a big part of the success Olympiacos has had to win their title this season and in their European campaigns.
"Kostas knows from personal experience what is required to challenge and succeed domestically and in the Champions League, and he is ambitious for more - just like us.
“He has come up against some very tough opponents in the past couple of seasons and done well and we know he relishes the challenge, which is perfect for us.
"For that reason we are delighted to know we’ll have him with us for the years ahead. I’m so pleased."
