It is difficult to believe that it has already been 12 weeks since Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott suffered a fracture-dislocation in his left ankle.
The young Liverpool midfielder had started the season well and was keeping more established senior-team players out of the side.
Elliott is now running at Liverpool’s AXA Training Centre as club rehab trainer David Rydings oversees sessions. Liverpool first-team physiotherapist Chris Morgan has claimed Elliott will return to the first-team this season, and the player’s progress being made should give everyone around the club hope of playing sooner rather than later.
“When Harvey will be back I have no idea,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said recently. “He’s our long-term prospect and we will not rush it.“
According to James Pearce of The Athletic, Elliott will be allowed to return to first-team training in January as long as rehab continues to progress smoothly. Nothing is set in stone timewise. A setback could push Elliott’s training return back further. The signs for a return to training in January are good for now, however.
Elliott has been praised by Klopp for his positive mindset following the injury.
“From a mental point of view, Harvey is rather an old soul,” Klopp stated.
“He’s very mature for his age. He’s completely fine with the situation. He has accepted it. He deals with it. I try and cheer him up some days but it is rarely needed. He has a brilliant family at home.”
It was feared Elliott wouldn’t return this season, but with him on course for a full recovery, fans could see the 18-year-old before long.
