Harvey Elliotts Outstanding Effort Versus Bilbao Earned Jurgen Klopps Praise

With his strong performance in Liverpool’s final pre-season friendly, Jürgen Klopp gave the clearest indication that he intends to keep Harvey Eliott in the team for the next season.
When Diogo Jota’s opening was cancelled out early in the second half, the 18-year-old started as the advanced midfielder of 3 as Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw by Athletic Bilbao.
Elliott played last season on loan at Blackburn Rovers, where he scored seven goals and provided 11 assists in 41 appearances.
Harvey Elliott shone against Athletic Bilbao and was applauded off the pitch in the second half. Juergen Klopp has only added one player to his roster so far, but claims he is delighted with it. The loss of Gini Wijnaldum has left Liverpool short in midfield, but Klopp believes Elliott’s adaptability might make the difference.
‘He can play (centre mid),’ Klopp said after the tie.
He can play on the right wing or up front. ‘He shattered the bar.’
He’s unique in that he can play a variety of positions.
‘In pre-season, we wanted to test him in midfield to get him more involved.’
He took great steps.’ Liverpool has had a quiet transfer window, with Ibrahima Konate’s PS36 million move from RB Leipzig being their lone acquisition.
Klopp, on the other hand, says that he is happy with his existing group.
‘I am extremely delighted with the team, but that does not mean we don’t look into the market,’ he said.
‘But, as long as nothing goes wrong, I am content with the group I have.’
I’m quite pleased with the players I’ve got.
‘There are a lot of things you can’t sign.’
You can’t sign our anthem, you can’t sign our counter-pressing, you can’t sign the atmosphere we create in the stadium, you can’t sign Anfield.
‘You can’t sign a lot of things, so we have to use that.’
Other techniques exist, of course, and we have control over them.
It is as it is in our position.
‘We have a big squad and there might be something happening until the conclusion of the transfer window, but I can’t say anything at the moment.’ Liverpool will kick off their season on Saturday with a trip to Norwich City in the Premier League, looking to reclaim the championship they lost to Manchester City last season.
