Kostas Tsimikas has another injury, according to reports. The Liverpool defender is currently with the Greek national team.
This comes from SportTime journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos. He says Kostas Tsimikas has an injury that kept him out of training on Friday.
Instead, Tsimikas worked on his own as he’s ‘not 100% fit’.
This would be his third injury of the season. Tsimikas picked up a thigh problem back in September that kept him out until November.
A second injury in December side-lined the Greek until January 20th. Altogether, those injuries kept Tsimikas out for 17 games.

It remains to be seen how serious this knock was or whether it’ll be a long-term issue.
What RTK has to say
We can’t comment too much as we know so little. Hopefully, it’s just a bit of wear and tear, meaning Tsimikas can return to action immediately.
It’s certainly a good sign that he’s still with Greece, rather than being sent back to Liverpool. That suggests Greece still believe he’ll play.
But it’s more bad luck for the 24-year-old. He’s barely played this season – just 135 minutes across the Premier League and Champions League.
A lot of that has been Andy Robertson’s constant availability, of course. But Tsimikas hasn’t been there to take any opportunities because of the injuries.
It’s already made us wonder how on earth Tsimikas can secure a future with Liverpool. He’s just had no impact whatsoever.
More worryingly for him, Liverpool haven’t missed him. Though, one injury to Robertson and that changes instantly.
Fingers crossed, then, that this one is nothing major and Tsimikas is fine. We don’t really want to see how things would be if Robertson went down and Liverpool didn’t have natural backup, after all.
With the business end of the season approaching, it’s all hands on deck at Liverpool. Those that aren’t already ruled out for the season, anyway.
