Harvey Elliott: Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp was visibly emotional when giving injury update

Jurgen Klopp was emotional when speaking about Harvey Elliott

Liverpool won 3-0 in their Premier League match against Leeds on Sunday afternoon.

But the game was overshadowed by a serious injury sustained to their promising youngster, Harvey Elliott.

The 18-year-old was making his third Premier League start in a row for the Reds.

However, he had to be stretchered off just before the hour-mark.

Elliott went down to the floor in visible discomfort after a challenge from Leeds defender, Pascal Struijk.



Struijk was given his marching orders while Elliott received medical attention and was stretchered off the pitch.

Elliott looks as if he will be out of action for many months.

The injury happened right in front of Jurgen Klopp and he looked stunned on the sidelines. 

He was then visibly emotional during his post-match interview. Watch it below:

He said: “It is a bad injury. His ankle. I heard it was dislocated and they couldn’t put it back and he is now in hospital.

“We have to wait. He played another incredible game again. He’s an incredible player. Now he’s out.

“Do I want such a young boy to have this experience in his career? No. We will play football without him, but we will wait for him as well because he is a top player.”

He added: “I saw the situation. I could see his foot was not in the right place. That is why we were all shocked.”

It was a tough interview to watch. View some of the reaction to the interview below:


Virgil van Dijk also paid tribute to his teammate in his post-match interview.

He said, per Liverpool’s official website: “All our thoughts and prayers are going to Harvey. Hopefully he recovers quickly and as good as possible from it.

“Obviously we have no idea what the diagnosis is at the moment but it looked bad. Apart from that, it was a fantastic win here.

“From the moment it happened, I think you saw Mo already shouting to the side that it was really serious. Then you look at the reaction of Harvey and you basically know that it’s really serious.”
