Liverpool star James Milner has praised the Red youngster’s recovery work from injury.
Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott seemed to have fully established himself as a regular first-team player at just 18 years old. Then the injury-hit, and not just an injury, but a possible season ending injury.
However, after scans and surgery, Elliott’s injured ankle was deemed not as badly injured as feared. A comeback in early 2022 would be possible. Now, he’s working towards it and his teammate James Milner is impressed.
“He’s been so positive from the start,” Milner said of his injured young teammate. “as soon as it happened, the things he was saying, he talks like he’s been through it all before and he’s a 30-odd-year-old player. He’s incredible.
“He’s got a great mindset, he’s done all his work, he’s progressing really well. Not too far off getting rid of the crutches, I think, which is fantastic. You just need to keep that phone out of his hands, so I think it’s good when he’s on his crutches!
“But he’s working really hard and that’s the thing that people don’t see. It’s so boring and would be easy not to do, but that’s the hard work that gives you the basis to push on through. He’s doing really well and that’s great to see.”
If all goes according to plan, Elliott may go back to training with his teammates sometime in December and hopefully be able to play again in the new year.
