Harvey Elliott, a Liverpool wonderkid, demolished an ‘impossible’ beach game when he was just three years old.
Harvey Elliott has been a sensation at Liverpool since joining from Fulham in 2019, and his father claims that his talent was obvious as early as the age of three.
Since joining Liverpool in 2019, Harvey Elliott has established himself as one of the most promising Premier League prospects, and the 18-year-old has quickly established himself as a fan favorite under Jurgen Klopp.
Elliott’s season was cut short, however, after he suffered a horrific ankle injury against Leeds in September, despite making a number of Premier League starts this season.
Thankfully, the star has almost fully recovered and is expected to be unleashed by Klopp once more, and the youngster’s abilities speak for themselves, given Klopp’s high regard for him.
But, according to Elliott’s father, his talent was obvious even when he was three years old.
Scott Elliott, Elliott’s father, recently appeared on the Kenn7 podcast and revealed that he realized his son had a special talent when he destroyed an ‘impossible’ seaside game when he was a child.
“We were down at Brighton beach when he was three or four years old, and there’s a wall down there and you put the footballs through the holes in the wall,” Elliott’s father explained.
“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 get four balls for a fiver and he [Harvey] can take the fourth shot, I’ll give it a go,’ and he said, ‘Yeah, go on then.’
“So I had my three shots and I was close to being fair, I was a little gutted, and then I said, ‘Here you go Harvs, have a go at this,’ and I put the ball down and me and his mother were just standing there, and he laced it straight through.”
“And don’t get me wrong, there’s a little bit of luck in there, but the strike and it was just one of those moments where you look at each other and go, ‘Wow, unbelievable!'”
Elliott, who has returned to ‘light’ training following his horrific injury, will be hoping to return to the Liverpool first team in the coming months.
