While Liverpool continues to produce eye-candy football, it seems one of their promising prospects may have failed to address an eye-catching concern.
Ahead of the club’s UEFA Champions League encounter against Atletico Madrid later this evening, left-back Kostas Tsimikas was spotted having a bruised eye during a training session on Tuesday.
The Greek left-back has been amongst the brightest prospects this campaign, having seamlessly fitted in the role of Andy Robertson, prior to the Scotsman’s return from injury early in the season.
Having arrived last summer, the left-back has been impressive in his few opportunities, managing to register three Premier League starts this season.
Tsimikas was pictured with a blackened bruised eye though the reason for the injury remains unconfirmed. Although the left-back did not appear to be hurting with pain, the injury did not hinder his willingness to enjoy and smile through the team’s light training session on Tuesday.
The club’s Twitter fanbase soon picked up upon the puzzling news, with many engaging in wholehearted banter while few others choose to sympathize with his appearance.
Where few accused Mo Salah of punching Tsimikas after the Greek appeared to steal the match ball following the former’s hat-trick against Manchester United, others remembered James Milner slapping the left-back following a lapse in concentration in their first game of the season against Norwich City.
Below, are some of the most amusing tweets, as the Reds fanbase probed for reasons behind Tsimikas’ black eye.
