Tsimikas has revealed how he got the nickname ‘Greek Scouser’ at Liverpool

Published

Kostas Tsimikas spoke to Liverpool’s official match program about how the ‘Greek Scouser’ nickname ‘sticked’ to him, citing the slogan the fans chant to him and the most memorable moment with the Reds.

Kostas Tsimikas is happy in his third season at Anfield in the red jersey and last year was undoubtedly the one that catapulted him into the eyes and consciousness of the club world.

He even went so far as to gift Liverpool the FA Cup trophy thanks to a well-placed penalty against Chelsea, in a year that saw him establish himself as the ‘Greek Scouser’ (as Scousers are known to Liverpool’s friends) of the Merseyside side and his heard name of a song on the lips of fans.

But how did his trademark “Greek Scouser” come about and what does he think of “ ‘Tsimi, Tsimi, Tsimi, oh Kostas Tsimikas, his passport says he’s Greek, but we know he’s Scouse’, sung to the rhythm of ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme” by ABBA?

“I was in the stadium gym with my friend, the fitness trainer, and at some point he says: ‘You’re the Greek Scouser’. To be honest, I really liked what he said.

So I posted it on Instagram and after that it became my name. Automatically!” I’m also really excited about the song that came out for me.

I haven’t heard it on the pitch and I can’t wait to hear it from the fans at Anfield. I think “Tsimi, Tsimi, Tsimi” is better than the original song.

I’m really happy about that and it makes my presence at Liverpool special.” he said characteristically.

As for the best footballing memories he has so far from being on Merseyside with Jurgen Klopp’s side, Tsimikas focused on the two trophies he celebrated at ‘Wembley’ against Chelsea in 2022:

“My best memories so far are winning the League Cup and the FA Cup. For me personally it was the penalty in the cup final at Wembley.

I ran to our fans and we celebrated the trophy together because every single player and every friend of the team wanted the trophy so badly.

I was delighted that we managed to lift the trophy and I hope we can celebrate other trophies together in the future so I can have even better memories.”

Filippo Giraldi has taken over as Nottingham’s sporting director, the club announced on Wednesday afternoon.

Nottingham hired him Philip Girardaldi in the role of sporting director as part of the reorganization after a poor start to this season.

The Italian hails from Watford, where he held the role of chief scout and then technical director in 2014 before departing after relegation in 2019-20.

Giraldi spent 11 years as director of football at Prato and head of scouting and academy at Brescia before moving to the island.

This organizational change may not be the last as Executive Director Dane Murphy finds himself in a difficult position, as does Head of Analytics and Reinforcements George Syrianos and Head of Scouting Andy Scott.

All this while Steve Cooper is reportedly winning the battle over where to stay on the bench and how he will be in the upcoming game against Aston Villa.

City’s defeat in the Manchester derby could bode well for United according to Erik ten Hach, who sees the result as part of his side’s development process.

Manchester United started at the Etihad last Sunday after four consecutive wins and home wins against Liverpool and Arsenal but suffered an absolute nightmare on Sunday afternoon, conceding six goals from their compatriots in the most successful game in the history of the two. teams (6-3 triumph for City).

Losing to City Blues on Matchday 9 in the Premier League hurt fans and players deeply and rocked a club that felt a long way from Pep Guardiola’s side, but Erik ten Hach drew positives from it.

“I know when you’re in transition you can’t just level up, you’re going to have setbacks. We beat the leaders, we beat Liverpool, we had a bad day at the office on Sunday and we were beaten.

City were better that day, we have to accept that. But we can’t accept the way we look, it was unacceptable.” stressed the Dutch coach at the press conference on Wednesday before the game against Omonia for the Europa League:

“It was a reality check so we have to learn from it and move on. We respect the opponent but we stick to our principles of surprising the opponent and bringing something different into play.”

That’s what we will do in the future, we take confidence from the wins against Arsenal and Liverpool and we also did a reality check against City.

We know we have to improve, so we have to thank City and Pep for the lesson they taught us.”
