Harvey Elliott made his long awaited return to full Liverpool training after more than four months away and Jurgen Klopp was keen to mark the event.

After congratulating the youngster on his comeback and re-introducing him to the group, the boss waited for the squad to disperse before making a beeline for the 18-year-old.

With his arms as wide as his smile, the German lifted our No.67 off his feet with a huge embrace in what was yet another example of his connection with his players.

It must have a been a moment the boyhood fan had been waiting for and it was suddenly worth the wait to be able to get back on the pitch.

Not long later he had to deal with Bobby Firmino excitedly sliding in during a rondo and it’s great to see the former Fulham player finally back in action.

So many supporters would give anything for a trademark hug from the gaffer!
