Martins: Liverpool signing Tsimikas was amazing against Pepe, Traore & Moura

Olympiacos coach Pedro Martins only has positive thinks to say about his recently departed player Kostas Tsimikas.

The left-back completed a move to Liverpool in the Premier League.

Despite losing such a quality player, Martins is very complimentary, and believes the Greek has everything to succeed with the Reds.

"If you look back over the season, he showed up in all the difficult games," Martins told Goal.

"He was often up against very good wingers, and in almost all of them he won his duels.

"He played well against Adama [Traore] but it was nothing new to me! He's had these kind of games before. It was normal Kostas!

"I remember him playing against [Magomed-Shapi] Suleymanov of Krasnodar, who is a fantastic winger. He was amazing. He played against [Daniel] Podence and Traore against Wolverhampton and he was amazing.

"Lucas [Moura] of Tottenham, he was perfect. Against Arsenal, [Nicolas] Pepe, he was amazing again. Whoever you confront him with, he steps up."
