Kit confirmation, Elliott on Salah & Klopp’s lineup hint – Latest LFC News

We’ve got the latest Liverpool news as the Reds recover from their 3-1 win over Wolves at the weekend.


Elliott’s plea to Salah

OK, so it might not have been as dramatic as a ‘plea’, but Harvey Elliott spoke about how he hopes Mo Salah stays at Liverpool for the “rest of his career.”

After being set up by the Egyptian for Liverpool’s third goal against Wolves, Elliott told reporters: “Hopefully, as I say, he doesn’t leave and he’s here for the rest of his career.

“I will do my best [to keep him] but to be just learning from him and in the same team as him is just a dream come true.”

The boyhood Liverpool fan added: “It’s not hard to see the quality player that he is and why he is one of the best in the world.”

Both players are left-footed and if Elliott becomes half the player Salah has, he will be some asset for Liverpool.
