The transfer fee can be called a bargain given the solid and reliable performances that the Greece international has put in till now. He has been an able deputy for first-choice left-back Andy Robertson, stepping up when the Scotland international has been unavailable.
The reliable full-back has played 62 times for the Premier League side providing 12 assists for his teammates. One of his best moments for the Reds came at Wembley in 2022 when he stepped up to score the winning penalty in the FA Cup final shootout against Chelsea.
