Kostas Tsimikas was delighted to pick up the Player of the Match award on Wednesday night as Liverpool progressed through to the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Although the Reds were held to a 3-3 draw by Benfica at Anfield in the second leg, the 3-1 victory they earned in Lisbon a week earlier ensured Jurgen Klopp’s side won the tie 6-4 on aggregate.
The Greek international performed superbly at L4 and registered two assists – both from set-pieces.
His ability to whip the ball in at pace really is impressive and he’s providing real competition to Andy Robertson for a starting spot at left-back.
Our No. 27 was keen to highlight that without his teammates, ‘he couldn’t do anything’ which is a clear example of the former Olympiakos man’s unselfish character.
The 25-year-old also insisted that the Reds ‘will keep going at the same pace’ to ensure they finish this season as successfully as possible.
Klopp’s side remain in contention to complete a historic quadruple and travel to Wembley tomorrow to face Manchester City in the semi-final of this season’s FA Cup.
Let’s hope the Greek international can continue performing superbly when he’s called upon.
