An enthusiastic Jürgen Klopp said Liverpool’s “splendid” 3-0 win at Leeds had been totally dominated by Harvey Elliott supporting a disengaged lower leg on just his third Premier League start.
The 18-year-old is confronting a while uninvolved having been severely harmed in a test by the Leeds protector Pascal Struijk. Elliott was released from clinic in Leeds on Sunday night and Liverpool said he would go through a medical procedure in the coming days.
Both the Leeds chief, Marcelo Bielsa, and proprietor, Andrea Radrizzani, safeguarded Struijk and demanded the injury was unintentional, albeit the substitute got a straight red card from the official, Craig Pawson, for genuine unfairness.
Liverpool clinical staff reset Elliott’s lower leg while he was on the pitch and the midfielder posted a message on Instagram expressing gratitude toward individuals for their help while he was on the way to clinic. Be that as it may, Klopp, noticeably resentful in his post-match meet with Sky, said he was battling to take any up-sides from a generally profoundly great success.
The Liverpool chief said: “That is one of a handful of the Instagram posts I love in case that is the situation and he did that generally, as it is a sign he isn’t in much agony. We as a whole saw the lower leg was not in the perfect spot any more. The clinical division put it in the perfect spot once more, which is truly essential to do as fast as could be expected, yet there isn’t a great deal of beneficial comments. It is an awful physical issue. We need to hang tight for additional assessments and sweeps.”
Klopp added: “We will be there for himself and we will hang tight for him. He is a top, top player. We played a great game until Harvey needed to go; the entire group was stunned and we lost mood. That is ordinary, human. I addressed the young men thereafter, we need to talk a smidgen about the football, however Harvey eclipses it.”
Bielsa demanded Struijk had not submitted a vindictive test and had won the ball prior to arriving on Elliott’s lower leg. “Pascal recuperated the ball,” he said. “The activity to get the ball wasn’t an infraction however I have the inclination that the development of the remainder of his body after he recuperated the ball made him hit Elliott.
“I’m absolutely certain there was no terrible goal. These sorts of recuperations of the ball are regular. The distinction here was Pascal’s speed and force hit the adversary and that caused the injury. I lament beyond a doubt that a particularly youthful player who was playing at a significant level was hindered through this. I trust he can get back.”
Radrizzani agreed: “The mishap was hard for himself and I wish the kid full recuperation – ideally he can get back soon – yet this is important for football. On the off chance that you watch the video you see that Struijk slide with the left foot on him and it was coincidental. It was anything but a planned injury. The assessment from the official wasn’t right. It is truly hard to take a red card like that.”
