PREMIER - Alisson: "Elliott arrived at 16 and we all recognised his quality."
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson says the senior players quickly recognised how good a player Harvey Elliott was when he first arrived from Fulham. Elliott is now recovering from a dislocated ankle injury suffered at Leeds United a fortnight ago.
Alisson said, "Injuries are part of the game unfortunately and it's something that can happen with everyone. So now we just need to give him the support that he needs to have a good time of rehab and to heal properly. And I'm sure 100 per cent that he'll be back stronger.
“He's a really, really good player. Since the moment he arrives here, he was 16 years old if I'm not wrong and you could see already his qualities. The way he plays football is amazing, his skills, and he's a really good guy as well, really cool guy – really, really nice. His family, his parents, they are really good.
“So you are just a little bit disappointed about it but I'm sure that in five, six months we will be speaking about good things about his rehab because we will have everyone at his side and he will be confident to be back in the best shape that he can be. And we will be here during this time for him."
