“He’s going to be a terrific player” – Danny Murphy praises 18-year-old Liverpool star’s development under Jurgen Klopp
Former Reds Ace midfielder Danny Murphy has tipped Liverpool FC youngster Harvey Elliott to become a ‘terrific’ player under Jurgen Klopp’s management.
Elliott is no doubt enjoying a breakout season with Liverpool, having played seven games across all competitions.
Having recently returned from injury, Harvey Elliott is set to establish himself as a starter for Liverpool again.
The Englishman has played against Cardiff City in the FA Cup, Leicester City in the Premier League, and Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League since returning from injury.
Despite his tender age, Elliott is mature enough to be a regular for the Anfield outfit, according to Murphy.
Murphy told talkSPORT: “I think Harvey Elliott has got that maturity about his game which you have to have to be put in the team.
” I’m really excited to see his development because I think he’s one of those players that gets fans on the edge of their seat because he’s got that silkiness, he can manipulate the ball, he can go past someone, and he’s going to score goals.”
He added “I think it was Jamie Carragher who was talking about playing him in a similar role to [Mohamed] Salah, I’m not sure about that because I think with his ability on the ball, keeping him more central is probably the way to go, which is why I think Jurgen’s playing him in a midfield three.
“He’s going to be a terrific player, but as I say, he’s [Klopp] done it before.”
“I enjoy watching him play, he’s a creative footballer whose got great technical ability. “If you’re good enough, you’re old enough with Jurgen, there’s no problem with that.”
Elliott scored his first goal for Liverpool in his first game back from injury against Cardiff in the FA Cup.
