Harvey Elliott shares what Mohamed Salah has told him to do at Liverpool
Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott is relishing the opportunity to learn from some of the football’s greatest talents at the Merseyside club.
Elliott has been one of the shining lights in a less than convincing start to the campaign for Jurgen Klopp’s team and has opened up on what it’s like to be part of the renowned squad.
The playmaker confessed that he hangs on every word of the top talents at the club and has even let Mohamed Salah dictate his eating habits.
“To have these players here and the chance to learn from them is amazing,” Elliott said as quoted by the Times.
“They all want me to do well and are giving me pointers, for example Mo with the bread. I have taken it on board.
“My breakfast is mainly bread with beans or avocado. I did eat bread in the morning, but that was white bread. Now I have changed it to brown bread which is a lot healthier.
“He is not someone to say, ‘You need to be doing this, you need to be doing that.’ He is more of a guy who helps you out and gives you pointers, and you go away and think about it.”
The Liverpool teenager is prospering under Klopp and will undoubtedly settle as a regular first-team starter for the Reds in the coming campaigns.
Elliott is already showcasing maturity and professionalism far beyond his years and has everything it takes to be one of the Premier League’s top talents.
He overcame a painstaking ankle injury last year, one which could have ended any career, coming back with vengeance this season.
A Liverpool supporter from young, Elliott knows what it means to the red half of Merseyside to win trophies and games and is the type of player every fan wants on their side.
Hopefully, the youngster can push on through this tricky period for the Reds and become a focal point of everything good they do.
He was in fact at times the only player looking likely to do something early on this season, a testament to his attitude and mental toughness.
