Kostas Tsimikas has revealed how he got the nickname ‘Greek Scouser’ at Liverpool.
He spoke on the Match Program of the “reds” and said among other things: “I was with my friend the fitness coach in the stadium gym and at one point he says to me: ‘You are the Greek scouser.’ I really liked what he said, to be honest.
That’s why I posted it on Instagram and after that it became my nickname. Automatically. I am very happy about it. But I haven’t really heard it on the pitch yet, so I can’t wait to hear it from the fans inside Anfield!”
He also referred to the now infamous Liverpool fans’ slogan: “Tsimi Tsimi Tsimi our Kostas Tsimikas his passport says he’s Greek but we know he’s Scouse!”.
In fact, he did not hesitate to compare it to ABBA’s song, ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme’, to which the Liverpool fans adapted the lyrics: ‘I think ‘Tsimi, Tsimi, Tsimi’ is better than the original song! I’m very, very happy about that and it makes my time here at Liverpool even more special.”
The former Olympiakos ace also referred to the best moments he has experienced in Liverpool: “The best for me so far are when we won the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup. For me personally, it was the penalty I scored in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
I went to our fans and we celebrated the trophy together because every fan and every player wanted it so much. I was very happy that we managed to win this trophy and I hope that in the future we will celebrate more trophies together and I will have even better memories of them.”
