Harvey Elliott Interview
Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott was moved to tears in a post-match interview with LFCTV as he paid tribute to his nan who recently died.
Elliott fell to the floor with his hands covering his face on the pitch in emotional scenes after he made it 2-0 in Liverpool’s 9-0 defeat of Bournemouth on Saturday.
It was Elliott’s first Premier League goal and one dedicated to his nan. He posted on Instagram: “That win was for you Nan! Rip my queen.”
And he choked up in an interview with the club’s official in-house media channel while discussing his contribution to Liverpool’s victory.
Asked what was in his mind for his goal, Elliott explained to LFCTV: “Just shoot. I’ve sort of had a few chances here and there, especially in the Palace game, but luckily today the ball hit the back of the net.
Elliott signed for Premier League club Liverpool on 28 July 2019 for an undisclosed fee. He made his debut for the club on 25 September in that season’s EFL Cup match against Milton Keynes Dons.
At the age of 16 years and 174 days, he became the youngest-ever player to start a match for the club, and second-youngest to feature in a competitive fixture behind Jerome Sinclair.
The following month, during the team’s 5–4 penalty shoot-out (after a 5–5 draw after extra time) win over Arsenal in the next round of the competition, Elliott became the youngest player to start a match at Liverpool’s home ground, Anfield, at the age of 16 years and 209 days.
He made his Premier League debut for Liverpool on 2 January 2020, replacing Mohamed Salah one minute before the final whistle in a 2–0 home win against Sheffield United.
Harvey Elliott could not hold back the tears as he dedicated his first Premier League goal to his grandmother after revealing that she passed away.
“My grandmother passed away a few days ago, so that was really just for her, and more importantly, the three points,” he said in his post-match interview.
Elliott was replaced at halftime by Liverpool, who were already leading 5-0, but Jurgen Klopp’s men refused to remain calm as they scored four more goals in the second half.
