Liverpool new boy Kostas Tsimikas was given a rollicking by veteran James Milner during the pre-season friendly against Stuttgart – and the cameras picked it up perfectly!
The Reds kicked off their preparations for the new Premier League season in brilliant style as they saw off Bundesliga side in style.
The game is Austria also marked a first appearance for new signing Tsimikas, who joined the Kop from Olympiacos for around £12m earlier this month.
The left-back, 24, but in a good shift for his new club – but one man wasn’t particularly impressed with his decision making at one stage.
With the Reds leading 2-0 early in the second half, Milner bombed forward after making a short pass to Tsimikas.
However, the Greece international looked off his one-two, preferring to go back to Takumi Minamino in midfield.
The decision angered Milner, who could very clearly be heard saying: “Ah Kostas! F***ing hell.”
The LFCTV commentators laughed at the 34-year-old’s outburst on air, with one suggesting he “wasn’t too happy”.

Speaking after the game, Tsimikas said that he felt good to be out on the pitch for Liverpool, even if it was in a friendly.
“I feel very good, I’m very happy I did my debut,” he told the club’s official website. “Now I want to work more and to play more often in the league games. I want to be ready for everything.
“The friendly games are difficult. First of all we have to be fit, that’s why I tried to run a lot first of all; to show a good image and play hard. And the result is the most important [thing], even in the friendly games and the competitive games.”

Meanwhile, his manager Jurgen Klopp praised Tsimikas’ first performance, insisting he looks good on the ball, as well as possessing great speed.
“Good, good. He is a pretty quick player and pretty confident, how you will hear in his [post-match] interview, but he is a good player – a really good player – and he did well.
“The next challenge for him is now to get used to our defending and things.
“It will take time, no doubt, but when he has the ball it looks not so bad.”
