Jurgen Klopp hailed Harvey Eliott as fearless after he scored on his return from a long-term injury in the FA Cup win over Cardiff. He dislocated his ankle in September. Eliott came off the bench in the second half and turned in a cross by Andy Robertson. He said that he will forever cherish the moment with Klopp calling him a great footballer after the game.
“He was unlucky with the injury but then lucky with the whole process afterward,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said about Harvey Eliott. “Everything has gone well. He did an incredible job and the medical department did an incredible job. He was patient coming back and he’s still a fearless boy and a great footballer. There are not a lot of good things when you get an injury like that, but when you are that young, you deal with it better. Getting this goal was a really touching moment.”
“Probably his biggest talent is how ready mentally he is out there. He is a kid, yes, but on the pitch not so much,” he added. “When he got the injury, the next day or two days later I saw him at the training ground and I was in a worse mood than he was. He was like, ‘Come on boss, head up, I will be back’. He is an exceptional talent in a lot of departments. The goal he set up for Taki was absolutely incredible: high press, I love it, and then Taki finished it off.”
