Liverpool has its first rookie this summer

Liverpool confirmed the successful recruitment of wing-back Tsimikas from Olympiacos, a team playing in the Greek National Championship.

According to Goal, Liverpool spent 11.75 million pounds for the signature of Tsimikas. The 24-year-old defender will sign a five-year contract with the defending Premier League champions. He was given the shirt 21, the old shirt number of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain or previously Lucas Leiva.

Liverpool’s rookie also has his first statement when he comes to the new team. Immediately, Tsimikas expressed ambition as coach Klopp mentioned.

In the 2019/20 season, Tsimikas made 46 appearances for Olympiacos and scored 7 goals. He is rated by Whoscored for his ability to dribble, pass and tack well. If you want to win the main kick in Liverpool, Tsimikas must overcome Andy Robertson, who has 12 assists in the Premier League this season. The Premier League champions on August 10 announced the rookie Greek left-back Kostas Tsimikas.

Tsimikas signed a long term contract after passing the medical examination. Liverpool will pay a transfer fee of 15 million USD for Olympiakos, the most successful team in Greek history with 45 national championships.

Tsimikas played 86 matches for Olympiakos and three games for the Greek team. The 24-year-old left-back will be a backup plan for Andy Robertson.

Tsimikas is a cheap rookie for Liverpool

Tsimikas is Liverpool’s first rookie in the summer 2020 transfer window. In the opposite direction, the Premier League champion has freed goalkeeper Andy Lonergan, midfielder Adam Lallana, and defender Dejan Lovren.

Former Liverpool midfielder John Barnes predicts that the new Premier League champion will not buy superstars this summer. Klopp was advised not to spend hundreds of millions of pounds on players.

Barnes, who played for Liverpool for 10 years from 1987 to 1997, once advised Klopp not to buy more stars, because that could ruin the team of Liverpool now. After the end of the 2019-2020 season, Klopp also confirmed that the home team will be silent on the transfer market and only take action if any talented player wants to leave.

One of the players Liverpool’s eyes are on is Bayern Munich midfielder, Thiago Alcantara. Barnes thinks that the Spanish player will be suitable for Klopp, but Liverpool does not have to be recruited.

Why would Liverpool not join in the summer football transfer?

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have their own reasons to stay out of this summer’s transfer.

It will not be easy for neutral football fans to understand this, but Liverpool has a good reason not to need to spend any money in this year’s transfer. They are the defending champions of the Premier League, the defending champions of Europe, and the rest of the world, but does Liverpool really need additional forces?

Admittedly, there is always a part of Liverpool fans, even a small part, think that Jugen Klopp must bring in new signings. But before the media, the German strategist knew how to protect his cautious bosses. They are cautious of course for a reason. Remember that before Van Dijk, Salah or Mane, Liverpool also played with Andy Caroll, Rickie Lambert, or Christian Benteke.

Of course, no coach does not want to increase the strength of his team, especially the clubs with great ambitions. So was Jurgen Klopp, and Liverpool’s scouting system had noticed a few notable names. After the departure of Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, and possibly Xherdan Shaqiri, the port city team squad will be slightly thinned. But there is no guarantee that Klopp will spend money in this transfer window to buy more players, even if they are in a powerful position.

Does Liverpool really need to buy more strikers to replace Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovre?

In Liverpool, the financial stability and transfer budget are based largely on revenue from ticket sales. The Covid-19 pandemic caused the Champions League to be postponed, the audience to go to the pitch, the advertising contracts were reduced, and so Liverpool lost several million pounds per game.

At this point, we still don’t know how the 2020-2021 Champions League will take place and where it will be held. Therefore, the participating teams, including Liverpool, do not know which sources they will profit from. All previous financial reviews are now turned into predictions.

With recent successes, they have the right to be patient in the transfer market. Every rookie coming to Anfield will have to meet the conditions to not ruin what Liverpool has built since the team rebuilding plan began five years ago.

Of course, old people in an old system will face many risks from rivals. But the above reasons are enough to make Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool not join in the summer football transfer, and they are completely reasonable to do so.

5 champions of Europe’s top 5 leagues in the 2019/20 season

After Juventus was crowned in Serie A, the 5 champions of the top 5 football leagues in Europe of the 2019/20 season were revealed.

Although Serie A still has 2 more rounds to finish, 5 champions of the top league have revealed after July 26 ended. The first team to win the championship was PSG when Ligue 1 organizers decided to end the tournament in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

5 champions of Europe’s top 5 leagues in the 2019/20 season

If there is a kick to the last 11 rounds, the championship is hard to miss from Mbappe and his teammates. By the time the tournament was halted, PSG had won 68 points and 12 points more than the second-ranked team, Marseille, despite playing one match less. Therefore, the championship of the Paris team is also not controversial.

This is the 7th Ligue 1 championship in the last 8 seasons of PSG. The closest team standing on top of France and not PSG was Monaco in the 2016/17 season.

Of the remaining four tournaments, the Bundesliga is the restarting game after Covid-19, the earliest and also the earliest curtain. The championship belongs to Bayern Munich with 82 points after 34 rounds, up to 13 points ahead of the second team, and “Gray Lobster” with 100 goals in the Bundesliga this season.

An extremely convincing championship of the Alianz Arena team although they started the season not very smoothly. This is the 30th league title in the history of Bayern Munich and they have done this in the last 8 seasons.

However, their performance has not been as impressive as Juventus. The Turin team has ninth consecutive crown in Serie A, a feat that no team in the top 5 leagues in Europe can do. Sarri’s teachers and students should have ascended the throne from the previous round, but the loss to Udinese caused Ronaldo and his teammates to wait for another round.

The football transfer bombs that may explode this summer

Despite the impact of the disease, the European football transfer market is still going on.

Alvaro Morata

Alvaro Morata is playing for Atletico Madrid on loan from Chelsea. Former Real striker will be bought by Atletico for £ 48.5 million (55 million euros) on July 1, 2020. Morata is an unsuccessful signing of “The Blues”.

Timo Werner

Timo Werner could be the next big deal to explode, after the PSG deal bought Mauro Icardi for 50 million euros (plus 8 million euros in the side clause) recently.

European media simultaneously reported that Chelsea was about to be signed by Werner for 60 million euros, the fee to release the contract of the German striker. Werder negotiated with Chelsea after not yet receiving an official offer from Liverpool.

Jadon Sancho

The number one goal of MU in the transfer market at this time is Jadon Sancho star of Dortmund. The German team is said to shout the price of the English player up to 115 million euros. However, in the context of the disease, media predicted Sancho could dock at MU for 80-90 million euros.

Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho will continue to be pushed by Barca in the upcoming summer transfer window. The Brazilian has been sought after by many Premier League teams. In the context of the Covid-19 translation, which is causing financial difficulties for the clubs, it is very likely that Barca must accept to sell the player for 65 million euros.

Lautaro Martinez

Last time, Lautaro Martinez has always been the leading name of Barca’s shopping list. Martinez’s current contract with Inter is still valid until 2023. The Milan team has claimed the player will only leave if the € 111 million contract release clause is triggered. Barca could add a few of his players to the deal, so as not to pay too much cash.

Thomas Partey

Thomas Partey is said to have agreed on Arsenal during the transfer window this season. He refused to negotiate a new contract with Atletico Madrid. Partey’s contract release fee for Atletico now is € 50 million.

Donny van de Beek

Last May, CEO Edwin Van der Sar acknowledged that Ajax was ready to part ways with Donny van de Beek in the summer of 2020 if it received a reasonable offer. Real and MU are the two most enthusiastic clubs to recruit Dutch players. The price of Van de Beek is currently around 40-50 million euros.

Four Most Successful Clubs in The History of English Football

English football has had a lot of teams that are successful for many years. Certain clubs are very consistent in ensuring that they stay relevant and keep winning trophies regardless of which players they get and which manager is running things.

Here are the four most successful clubs in the history of English football.

4. Chelsea, 24 Trophies

Although Chelsea is a team that has recently started winning titles, they have quite made up for it by having caught up to the highest teams. Chelsea has six league titles and one Champions League title to their name.

However, they have been ever present in European competitions, winning two Cup Winner’s Cup titles as well as two UEFA Cup/Europa League trophies, to require their tally to 24.

3. Arsenal, 30 Trophies

Arsenal is one amongst the highest three clubs in England football that has continuously been at the highest since they were promoted to the primary Division. Though the Gunners are presently nowhere near winning the league, they manage to win an FA Cup every now then.

Arsenal has 13 league titles and FA Cups and 2 European cups, their total trophy count is 30.

2. Manchester United, 42 Trophies

It was not too way back that Manchester United was fighting for the league title every season. Since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, they need floundering about, but that has not stopped them from winning other trophies, more recently being the FA Cup and therefore the Europa League.

Their tally of 20 league titles is that the highest in England and that they are joint first in terms of total trophies won – at 42.

1. Liverpool, 42 Trophies

Despite the fact that they have only 18 league titles, they have been significantly more successful in Europe, helping them reach 42 trophies overall.

Liverpool plan to sign Real Madrid’s untouchable next year

Liverpool have plan of an audacious swoop for one of Real Madrid’s best players in the last few years, who is Zinedine Zidane‘s favorite.

After donning their prestigious FIFA Club World Cup badge for three years and over 1000 days on the trot, Real Madrid lost it to Liverpool. Inarguably now, the Reds are the world’s best team and most of it is down to Jurgen Klopp, who is reported by El Desmarque to be eyeing a huge transfer for one of Zinedine Zidane’s first names on the team list.

Casemiro has absolutely been pivotal for the Merengues at the heart of the midfield this season and his presence has led to their winning some crucial matches. The Brazil international has probably not even played any bad game this season, but when he was suspended against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, it is fair to say that he was missed at the back.

In the Premier League, Liverpool are 11 points ahead of Manchester City with a game in hand and are possibly running away with the title ahead of the Citizens, but Jurgen Klopp is not overconfident about the quality of his team and therefore, according to claims, he will look to move for Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro in the upcoming months.

Klopp presently has Jordan Henderson to employ as a defensive midfielder but despite of playing really well of late, the England international has shown that he can be easily bullied off the ball by a player who is more physical than him. Additional, Henderson is not much of a threat going forward as is Casemiro who does occasionally chip in with the goods.

Zinedine Zidane and Florentino Perez will surely ask Liverpool to look at alternative options, but Casemiro has won every possible accolade with Real Madrid and it may not be surprising if he chooses to head to new beginnings in the upcoming years. Nevertheless, the Whites will slap an exorbitant price tag on him if anyone is interested.
