Tammy Abraham has reacted on his Instagram story to Harvey Elliott’s worrying injury during Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Elland Road on Sunday.
The Roma striker told the Liverpool teenager ‘get better soon, lil bro’, after he was stretchered off during today’s encounter at Leeds.
Manchester City winger, Raheem Sterling also sent his best wishes on his Twitter by saying: “Wishing you a speedy recovery man.”
Pascal Struijk was shown a straight red card straight after the challenge, but it seemed as though it was just an unlucky situation for Elliott.
Jordan Henderson was just 30 seconds away from coming on for the young midfielder, only for him to suffer a serious injury right in front both benches.
England international Abraham sent this message from his Instagram story to the Liverpool player: “Get better soon lil bro,” said the £34 million striker.
It was an unfortunate moment both for Elliott, who suffered the injury, and the man who made the challenge in Struijk.
There wasn’t any aggression to his tackle, but it did seem as though the referee, on the field, made the call to show him red because of the nature of Elliott’s injury.
Either way, many will be hoping it isn’t too serious because the young gun has been outstanding for the club during these opening stages of the new season.
The fact that Jurgen Klopp has put so much faith in an 18-year-old, by starting him in games against the likes of Chelsea, says a lot about what he thinks of him.
Hopefully, it’s one of those that just looks bad to the naked eye, but it will produce better results once the player gets tested.
But Liverpool fans must be feeling that their luck just isn’t there because they only came off the last campaign with their players suffering serious injuries.
