Harvey Elliott praises key figure behind his Liverpool progress
Reds starlet Harvey Elliott has praised James Milner for maintaining high standards behind the scenes at Melwood.
Milner, who made his Premier League for Leeds debut before Elliott was born, was the first to celebrate with the youngster after his first goal for the club in last Saturday’s 7-2 friendly win over Blackpool.
“Millie is a big aspect for the team, and not just the first team,” said the winger, speaking earlier this year.
“Even for us players coming up, when he’s played in the Carabao Cup games, we look to him.
“To have him around us young players, we learn so much from him.
“He’s always giving us tips, wanting us to improve. He’s motivating us and wanting us to be the best.”
Here’s everything that the winger said about coming of age at Liverpool.
Liverpool could receive big boost from Barcelona’s latest Philippe Coutinho plan
Philippe Coutinho is set to be welcomed back into Barcelona the first-team fold and play a part in their upcoming season, having been sent out on loan to Bayern Munich last term.
The former Liverpool playmaker, Barcelona’s record signing, has struggled since arriving at the Camp Nou in January 2018.
But he played a part in Bayern Munich’s treble last season, and came off the bench to score two goals against his parent club in an 8-2 thrashing in the Champions League quarter-final.
The good news for Liverpool is that they’re due a further fee of around £4.4m from Barcelona if Coutinho makes an additional 15 appearances for the Catalan club.
