Harvey Elliott likened to Barcelona legends


Liverpool prospect Harvey Elliott has been compared to legendary former Barcelona midfield duo Xavi and Andres Iniesta

The teenage attacker who impressed much on his loan spell at Blackburn Rovers last season was held in high regard by former Reds, Jason McAteer in an interview with LFC TV.

McAteer said of Elliott: "I'm a big fan from the minute I saw him.

"I saw him in a pre-season friendly in Switzerland, his pass appreciation, his touch. He was sensational.

"His best position is a million dollar question. For me I do see - and these are big names coming out - I do see Xavi and Iniesta in him. I see Thiago as well, that kind of player developing.

"When I say that, I see a player who can see a pass, is comfortable on the ball - he'll have it in a phone box. He always wants to get on it, his head's on a swivel always looking around but he can execute."
