Harvey Elliott hopes to emulate Steven Gerrard at Liverpool
Speaking to the club’s official site, Liverpool wonderkid Harvey Elliott has expressed his desire to follow in the footsteps of club legend Steven Gerrard at Liverpool.
The 17-year-old signed for Liverpool last summer from Fulham. In spite of his tender age, he has been a mainstay in the cup squads this season.
“I strive to be like Steven Gerrard, to be as big of a legend here as him”
Elliott has impressed both fans and staff alike and is expected to go a long way in his career. The youngest player to make a senior appearance for Liverpool, he is already in the history books.
He isn’t satisfied with just that and is keen to write more chapters in a story which is right now in a nascent stage.
Elliott has expressed his desire to win the Champions League and the Premier League at Liverpool. He is committed to seeing the club succeed and is willing to do his part to ensure it happens.
Learning from the best
From the current squad, it is Egyptian superstar Mohamed Salah who has had the most influence on the youngster.
Playing in a similar position, the youngster has learned a lot from our star man. Salah has also been a positive influence off the pitch and has constantly strived to help Elliott get better. He has described working alongside the Egyptian as a dream come true.
It is perhaps apt that Elliott made his first Premier League appearance for the club as a substitute for Salah. It was revealed by assistant manager Pepijn Ljinders that the youngster amazed Klopp in his first training session at the club. Considering the players the German has managed, that is some compliment.
