There’s a great long read in the Athletic today about Harvey Elliott, Liverpool’s prodigally talented teenager.
The 17-year-old arrived at Anfield last summer, but various huge clubs around Europe were already vying for his signature – including Real Madrid…
Elliott even went over to Spain in order to check out the facilities and in an attempt to persuade him to sign, Real Madrid offered the playmaker a chance to meet Sergio Ramos.
‘No, it’s ok thanks… I don’t like him after what he did to Mo Salah,’ came the reply, according to James Pearce.
The comments have got huge traction on Twitter, with Liverpool fans lapping them up and rivals claiming it never happened.
Below, we’ve included a large portion of the replies from Reds.
We think Elliott is an exceptional player and someone we have enormously high hopes for in the future. Hopefully he’ll get a few opportunities to show what he can do after football returns in a few weeks, providing the title is wrapped up nice and early.
Ramos made our club stronger and more together and determined than anyone could imagine, liverpool are back
