Liverpool have confirmed that a price has been agreed for Σωτήρης Κυργιάκος AKA Sotirios Kyrgiakos (how do you pronounce it?), the Greek central defender will be moving to Merseyside after his medical this weekend.
With both Agger & Skrtel out for a couple of weeks Rafa wanted an experience player to cover the position and help Jamie Carragher (who himself had to wear a headband tonight). Sotirios is probably not the first choice of most Reds but we simply need someone experienced to fill that critical spot for the next few weeks.
I personally think this a great move by Rafa and for a reported price of around 2 million the 30 year old is a great signing. Funny enough the last time Rafa had to make a rash decision to purchase a central defender he brought in Martin Skrtel.
καλωσορίσατε Σωτήρης Κυργιάκος
