Liverpool youngster Kostas Tsimikas while addressing Liverpoolfc.com said, he loves the competition between him and Andy Robertson. The fight for first place in the team in terms of minutes has been great.
The Greek international has been impressive whenever he has stepped onto the pitch. He could be on the first team sheet regularly, but it will be a tough task for him. Andy Robertson’s class against Porto showed that he is going to make it harder for Tsimikas if he wants to make a place for himself in the starting XI.
The Liverpool youngster has been in a formidable form which makes it impossible to avoid him. He has been brilliant since the start of the season and is looking forward to grabbing more opportunities coming his way. The 25-year-old may not be assisting much but has incredible stats to his name.
Kostas ensured on the club’s official website that the fight for the starting spot is going good. There is no inferiority in terms of their relation, as he termed it as a ‘healthy competition’. Thus, Liverpool are currently having a group of many good players and each of them must fight to earn the starting spot.
Liverpool youngster Kostas on his competition with Andy
While addressing Liverpoolfc.com he said:
Andy and I work a lot in training. We give everything to play for the team. In my understanding, we help each other; we are close to each other. If anyone wants anything, he asks the other. We always try to find the best for the team and we work towards that. I am happy with this player on my side and competition is healthy.
Kostas Tsimikas has evolved so much that he has gained the trust of everyone around him. We can expect him to feature quite frequently if not against the Saints this weekend. However, if Andy Robertson starts, he has to be enthusiastic and energetic as he was against Porto.
Robertson will look to create chances, make assists and have an overall impact if he starts against Southampton. The energy within the team is lightened and this will raise the competition even more among players.
