Former Liverpool player Jose Enrique believes that Egyptian star Mohamed Salah is playing the same roles that former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard used to play with young players, through his young assistant Harvey Elliott in the last period, until he signed a new long-term contract with the Northern Club last week. .
Elliott, 19, signed a long-term contract with Liverpool on Thursday, leaving him at Anfield until 2027 as a reward for his development last season.
Elliott highlighted Salah’s efforts with him during the last period, and told the official Liverpool website: I received a lot of support from the great players, specifically Mohamed Salah, as well as Jordan Henderson.
He continued: Because I play on the right side and near them, they used to help me and advised me to do several other things or experience, especially Mohamed Salah that he always asks me to follow his method in training and the gym so that he can help me.
Enrique, a former Liverpool player between 2011 and 2016, said in comments reported by “Liverpool Echo”: This is a good thing from Mohamed Salah to see something good in Harvey Elliott, I remember that Steven Gerrard was doing that with Henderson when the latter was in his infancy.
Elliott played Liverpool’s first four matches in the Premier League last season, but he suffered a horrific ankle injury at Leeds that prevented him from appearing again even in February of this year.
