Liverpool teenager Harvey Elliott has sent a message to fans following his terrible injury in the Reds 3-0 win over Leeds United on Sunday.
Elliott was injured after being attacked by Leeds defender Pascal Struijk – a challenge in which the Dutchman was sent off by referee Craig Pawson.
The challenge did not seem malicious, but he received his marching orders due to “the intensity and endangerment of Harvey Elliott,” said the Premier League The athlete.

“It’s his ankle. I heard it was dislocated and they couldn’t put it back and he’s in the hospital now. Liverpool said boss Jürgen Klopp Sky Sports.
“Do I want such a young boy to have this experience in his career? No. We will play football without him, but we will also wait for him because he is a top player.
“I saw the situation. I could see that his foot was not in the right place. That’s why we were all shocked. “
Opposing manager Marcelo Bielsa also commented on the injury and red card decision and said, “I am very sorry for what happened, I wish it hadn’t happened.
“It’s sad that this happens to every player. For a young player who plays at a high level, even more. I’m sure my player had no intention of harming him in any way.
“Maybe what happened after he found the ball caused the injury. The tackle was clear, but the acceleration in our player’s movement clearly caused it. He did not harm the opponent in any way.
“I am very sorry that the opponent was injured and I am 100% sure that our player did not have any bad intentions. I wish it hadn’t happened. “
Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani also spoke with Sky Sports, said: “I wish the boy all the best. This is soccer. It is accidental. Personally, I feel sorry for the boy. The injury is difficult for him. We cannot control this type of injury. It was a coincidence, but I honestly feel sorry for the player.
