Harvey Elliott has revealed how Jurgen Klopp kept a promise to him when Liverpool were crowned Premier League champions during the 2019-20 season.  

The midfielder was just 17-years-old when Jordan Henderson lifted the trophy to end a three decade wait for the Reds to win the title.

Elliott, had only arrived at Anfield the previous summer from Fulham, and made just two Premier League appearances that season - making his league debut as a replacement for Mohamed Salah off the bench in a 2-0 win over Sheffield United.

Premier League rules at the time stated that winners' medals could only be given to those who made a minimum of five appearances, and though Elliott missed the cut by three games, Klopp delivered on a promise he made a few weeks before they were presented with the trophy. 

He told the Liverpool Echo: 'I am not sure if it was [Klopp's] medal, it could have been his but I got one at the end of the day, I walked into the changing room after the parade and the presentations and they gave it to me then.

'I mean I can't really describe how I felt I was just over the moon and sending pictures to my mum and dad [saying]: 'I've got a medal! I've got a medal!' And they were in the ground as well, so I was able to go up and show them and have a bit of a celebration with them. It was just, you know, a great feeling.'
