Harvey Elliott has completed an impressive loan at Blackburn Rovers and has now signed a new long-term contract at Liverpool. Elliott has placed his eyes on regular game time after agreeing on a new long-term deal with Liverpool.
For Liverpool, the 18-year-old young talent has appeared nine times and impressed when loaned out to Blackburn Rovers in the Championship last season. He has scored seven goals and added 11 assists in 41 league appearances for Blackburn. The winger, who plays for the English Premier League club, thinks this move will help him get “in and around” Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI in 2021-22.
Elliott signed new contract at Liverpool
“I think that’s got to be everyone’s aim: to get in the team. – to get in and around it at least,” Elliott, who joined Liverpool from Fulham in 2019, told the club’s website. “It’s not going to come easily; there’s a great bunch of boys here and great talent. But it’s down to me to work hard. I believe in myself that I can do it. I just want to be around the team, support everyone and be there if needed.
“Ever since I first walked through the door they [the coaching staff] have shown [faith]. They show it with every single player; they always have faith in you. They’re always giving you 100 percent on the training pitch and off the training pitch, always wanting you to be the best possible person and player. I feel like there’s a lot of faith in me. But it’s just down to me to go and show it and prove them right.”
Elliott says he will never grow tired of the feeling of playing for Liverpool. He added: “It’s always going to be there throughout the years I’m here. Hopefully, it’s going to be a long time. There’s always going to be those butterflies whenever you put on the shirt, whenever you go out to train and play, whenever you’re involved in the club there’s always that feeling.
“Especially for me, being a Red, as well as my family – it’s nice to make them proud and make myself proud. But the hard work carries on. It’s always a nice feeling when you sign a new contract – especially for your boyhood club. It’s all done and dusted now so I’ve just got to focus on pre-season, get my work in and make sure I’m ready for the season.”
