the attacking midfielder Harvey Elliott, Liverpool’s jewel, revealed that he was thrilled with all the love and support he received after suffering a serious ankle injury. The fateful move came during Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Leeds last Sunday in the Premier League.
Elliott, 18, suffered a cart behind Leeds defender Pascal Struijk, who received a red card. The player fell in pain, while other athletes on the field did not hide their fear of the injury. Liverpool said the player will undergo surgery in the coming days.
