Liverpool wonderkid Harvey Elliott destroyed ‘impossible’ beach game aged just 3
Harvey Elliott has emerged as one of the brightest Premier League talents since joining Liverpool in 2019, and the 18-year-old has already become a favourite under Jurgen Klopp.
Unfortunately though, after making a series of Premier League starts this season, Elliott's season was brought to an abrupt halt as he suffered a horror ankle injury against Leeds in September.
Thankfully, the star has almost made a full recovery and is expected to be unleashed by Klopp again, and the youngster's talents speak for themselves as he is held in such high regard by the Liverpool boss.
But his talent was clearly visible even at the age of three, according to Elliott's father.
Elliott's father, Scott Elliott, recently appeared on the Kenn7 podcast and revealed that he realised that his son had a special talent from an early age as he destroyed an 'impossible' seaside game.
Elliott's father said: "We were down at Brighton beach and he would have been three or maybe four and there’s a wall down there and you put the footballs through the holes in the wall.
"It was like three shots for a fiver to win something and I said to the guy: 'That’s bloody impossible mate, no chance! I tell you what, if I can have four balls for a fiver and he [Harvey] can take the fourth shot, I’ll have a go' and he went, 'Yeah, go on then'.
"So I had my three shots and I was close to be fair, I was a bit gutted and then I said: 'Here you go Harvs, have a go at this', I put the ball down and me and his Mum were just standing there and he laced it straight through.
"And I know there’s a bit of luck in that, don’t get me wrong, but the strike and it was just one of those moments you look at each other and go 'Wow, unbelievable!'."
Elliott will be hoping to return to the Liverpool first team in the coming months, as the star has now returned to 'light' training following his horror injury.
