Kostas Tsimikas urges Liverpool to ‘celebrate hard’ after FA Cup triumph

Kostas Tsimikas has said Liverpool must ‘celebrate hard’ after beating Chelsea on penalties to win this season’s FA Cup.

The Greece international scored the decisive spot kick to hand the Reds their first FA Cup since 2006.

When asked by BBC Sport what was going through his head when he stepped up to take the decisive spot kick, Tsimikas said: “I think the hard work, we gave absolutely everything.

“Big congratulations to the boys who played the most [of the game]. We have to celebrate hard, but tomorrow is the next day and we still have a lot to do. We have the games in the Premier League and we have the big [Champions League] final.”

He added: “It’s very, very special for me. The manager asked me which number I wanted [to take] and I said number seven. He said ‘why so far?’ and I said ‘I want number seven’.
