Seemingly, the 25-year-old was brought in so that Jürgen Klopp could hand Andy Robertson a well-earned rest when needed, but the Scotland captain went on to feature in all of Liverpool’s Premier League games and 10 Champions League matches.

The case of Kostas Tsimikas has been a curious one since the left-back joined Liverpool from Olympiakos last summer, with the Greece international making a total of just two appearances for the Reds last season.

Tsimikas might be a clear understudy, but his good form is good news for Robertson too.

Given the injury crisis, Klopp was already facing at the club, especially in the backline, taking Robertson out of that defence could have only hindered the side more.

But the form and confidence that Tsimikas has shown, and the fact he has senior central defenders alongside him, means that Liverpool can take their time with the Scotland skipper and make sure he is in the best shape possible to help Liverpool in their pursuit of a second Premier League title in three years.

Liverpool’s number 26 struggled to break into the side and was playing second fiddle to Alberto Moreno until the latter picked up an injury against Sparta Prague at Anfield in the Champions League — Robertson came on to replace the Spaniard and is now touted as one of the best left-backs in world football.

Robertson helped his beloved Scotland qualify for their first major tournament in 30 years, so his inclusion in this summer’s Euros delayed his arrival to Liverpool’s pre-season camp in Austria, giving Tsimikas the chance to impress in the early friendlies.
