Harvey Elliott explained his dream future with Liverpool this week. The teenager is living the dream at Anfield.
Harvey Elliott has had a bizarre season, really. He started off as a surprising first-choice midfielder, playing week-in, week-out for Liverpool.
And he did it brilliantly, too. Some of Elliott’s performances were truly fantastic to kick off the campaign and it appears he was destined for a special season.
Unfortunately, injury struck and ruled Elliott out for months. He didn’t return at the same level and we haven’t actually seen too much of the teenager in 2022. Three of his four Premier League starts came before the middle of September, for instance. He’s only made six league appearances in total.
So with that in mind, how does Elliott see his Liverpool future? He hasn’t had anywhere near the amount of football he’ll have hoped for – so what’s next?
“To be able to say I’ve played for Liverpool, played with some of these players – it’s a dream come true, for me personally,” said Elliott, per Beanyman Sports. “To go from a fan to pulling on the shirt as a player.
“Who knows what the future will hold? Hopefully, I’m here for the rest of my life but it’s down to me to make sure that I’m capable of playing for them. I’ll work as hard as I can and do what I can to make sure that happens.”
Harvey Elliott and his Liverpool future
This is what you want to hear. Elliott sees no future for himself beyond trying to make it at Liverpool – and we’re confident he’ll do just that.
The 19-year-old is wonderfully talented, after all. His mentality is elite, as well, and has been clear for some time now. So we’re not worried. This was was simply an unfortunate one as injury robbed Elliott of momentum.
By the time he returned, Liverpool were focused entirely on winning the league and that forced Jurgen Klopp to leave players out. Not to mention the ridiculously clean injury record at the club in 2022.
Elliott will fare better next season – we don’t doubt that for a second. And hopefully, that leads to him sticking around as a key player for a long, long time to come.
