Liverpool must keep icon's warning in mind after Harvey Elliott's 'very excited' admission


Liverpool need to keep a club icon’s warning about Fabio Carvalho’s contribution for next season after Harvey Elliott admitted he is “very excited” to link back up with him. Carvalho will join the Reds this summer after they confirmed a deal with Fulham, replicating their move for Elliott three years ago.

Elliott enjoyed a breakthrough season in the campaign just gone, becoming a regular feature in Jurgen Klopp’s side. And he has now revealed that he thinks Carvalho can follow him down that same path.

“He was my favourite player to play with as a youngster to be honest at Fulham. Me and him had a great connection, on the pitch as well as off the pitch and I will definitely look after him when he arrives. But to be honest, I don’t even think I will have to do that, he will just fit in perfectly with the rest of the squad,” Elliott told the Liverpool Echo.

“He’s got everything in him, every attribute you can think of, and that’s why Liverpool have signed him. So I am very excited to see what he can bring to this team as well as all the fans and I am sure he will show them very quickly. So I am just very excited to see him again after three years or so and I am just very excited to share the pitch with him again.”

“At the moment it’s unlikely you can see anyone getting themselves into that side ahead of Diaz, Mane and Salah. Obviously, they think highly of him, and I’ve seen him enough to know he’s a super talent, but I think he needs a couple of years learning at the top level before you could think of him breaking into a Liverpool XI.”

Murphy won Liverpool’s player of the year award in 2003 so is clearly aware of the difficulties Carvalho may face. The 19-year-old starred for Fulham as they won the Championship, but as Murphy said, Liverpool will need to be patient as he transitions into playing for a team challenging for major titles.
