Harvey Elliott injury update as Liverpool youngster surgery date confirmed
Jurgen Klopp has offered an injury update on Harvey Elliott ahead of the midfielder undergoing ankle surgery.
The 18-year-old was stretchered off in Liverpool ’s 3-0 win against Leeds United on Sunday after suffering a dislocated ankle following a challenge from Pascal Struijk.
“I spoke to him the night after the game already,” the German told reporters at his AC Milan pre-match press conference. “He wasn’t in the best possible place for that moment but he took it already.
“He accepted it already and knew he would be out for a while.
“Today he is in London and will, as far as I know, probably have the surgery today.
“That is the next step to the way back and we all wait for news from after the surgery and that is it."
