Jurgen Klopp has disclosed that Liverpool’s Harvey Elliott was in massive pain after suffering a serious ankle injury during his side’s Premier League match against Leeds United at Elland Road on Sunday.
Elliott, 18, was carried off on a stretcher and taken to hospital following a challenge by Leeds defender Pascal Struijk, who was sent off.
Klopp said Elliott had dislocated his ankle during Liverpool’s 3-0 win.
“We’ll play without him, but we will wait for him as well because he is a top player,” added the Liverpool boss.
Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah immediately called for the medical staff after seeing Elliott in pain.
Liverpool manager said, “I saw the situation,”I could see his foot was not in the right place. That is why we were all shocked.”
“Massive pain, shock for him, for us and we don’t know more. We have to wait.
“I cannot feel the game anymore. Harvey overshadows everything.” Klopp added.
