The young Liverpool star will be out of action for some time.

Liverpool

assistant coach Pep Lijnders believes his youngster Harvey Elliott has had a tremendous reaction to his recent ankle fracture.

Elliott was forced to leave the pitch during Liverpool's recent game against Leeds due to injury and then underwent surgery. This injury will slow down the growing of the 18-year-old star in his debut season in the first team. He is not expected to return to action in the next seven months, but Lijnders praised him.

He told

: “Harvey is Harvey, a young boy and he deals with it outstandingly.

“He deals with it really well and we have a really strong structure in place with our medical department, with all the guys around, we try to support him as much as we can in these early stages.”

“If you see our squad of players, we have so many players who had not similar injuries, but similar situations where they had a long-term injury,”

he added.

“You see that our group is a proper family, you see how they reacted when it happened - Naby was with tears in his eyes next to the pitch, Curtis was emotional. You see how much it means to all of us, not just from a football point of view, but from a young player point of view [who was] in such a good moment and we lost one of our better midfielders.”
