New signing Kostas Tsimikas received a warm welcome into the life as Liverpool player.
In what could be called as the highlight of the second half, Kostas Tsimikas found out just how intense it is to play with someone like James Milner as your teammate.
The new Liverpool left-back had to bear the brunt of it when he chose the other option than passing to James Milner during the friendly clash against Stuttgart in Austria.
The Greek took the ball back, towards the defence, instead of linking up with the 34-year-old, who had made a clever run and found space further up the pitch.
Milner wanted the ball and it showed in his reaction as the veteran yelled “Kostas f*cking hell!” in frustration –

In other events, Naby Keita continued his rich vein of form since the restart of football with a calm finish in the first half.
Keita’s goal gave Liverpool a 2-0 lead going into the second half at Salzburg after Roberto Firmino had found the back of the net in the 15th minute.
Rhian Brewster made it 3-0 with a simple tap-in as Liverpool ran out winners at the Sportplatz Langau stadium.
