Liverpool newly signed midfielder Harvey Elliot went through a successful surgery. Harvey Elliot sustained a serious ankle injury in their 3-0 victory over Leeds United in the Premier League. After a successful surgery, the midfielder is all set to return to the league again on Tuesday.
The 18-year-old Harvey Elliot suffered fracture-dislocation after the tackle from Leeds Pascal Struijk. Elliot was on a stretcher before taking him to the hospital.
“We were able to reduce the dislocation immediately on the pitch and Harvey had surgery today to repair the fracture and ligaments damaged in the incident. The operation was a success so his comeback starts now.
We won’t put pressure on him by setting a specific timeframe beyond being able to say with confidence we expect him to feature again later in the season following our rehab programme,” said club doctor Jim Moxon in a statement.
Will Harvey leave an impact on Liverpool with his performance?
After the foul, Struijk is been given a red card and he went back. Writing he said, “what happened was something he “would never wish on anyone”.
Harvey Elliott responded by saying it was a freak accident and was not worthy of a red card. This comes after the players collided with each other.
“I will be back very soon and perform much stronger than before. I will give my 100%. Thanks for all the support,” said Harvey Elliot after the injury.
Speaking in his press conference on Thursday, Bielsa said: “It’s very easy to clear up. Without Pascal on the pitch, the superiority of Liverpool was evident.”
Before he continued via Leeds Live: “The second thing is that there was a [player with] appearances in the four/five games played, is Elliott [who has played] the same appearances as Mount or Foden and those who love football, when a player of that nature is injured, we’re saddened.”
But following a review by the FA, Leeds confirmed on Wednesday morning that their appeal is been unsuccessful and Struijk will now serve a three-game ban. This news would affect Leeds in their upcoming games in the League.
Reacting to news of this official verdict, Elliott is defending Struijk again and saying that he believes the wrong call has been made.
