Harvey Elliott praised Mohamed Salah's influence on his Liverpool career so far, claiming he has the perfect model in Egypt. Salah is in his third season at Anfield and has won two gold boots from the Premier League and the Champions League.
For a teenager like Elliott, Salah is the perfect player to admire on the training ground.
As a Liverpool fan in his childhood, Elliott has been watching Salah's performance closely, even during his time at Fulham.
Now he has a chance to interact with former Chelsea and Roma behind the scenes at Melwood, something Elliott is not taking for granted.
When asked to describe Salah in an interview with assistant manager Pep Ljinders on the Liverpool website, Elliott spoke highly of his teammate: "King, I would say!" said Elliott when asked to describe the Egyptian.

"Even in the gym, he is telling me to put on more weight, to try even harder.
"To have him at the club and around us young players, he really is a big influence."
Elliott was signed from Fulham last summer, making his Premier League debut for the Cottagers at the age of 16.
He was just 15 when he made his senior debut and received his first Premier League appearance for Liverpool against Sheffield United in January.
Before that, he had several chances to impress in the League Cup and FA Cup, something he grabbed with both hands.
Klopp was impressed with his application and maturity in October, when the Reds beat Arsenal on penalties after a 5-5 draw in the Carabao Cup.
"It's easy to be convinced of him when you see him training," said Klopp of Elliott.
"He is an exceptional talent, absolutely, and he is also a nice boy.
“To see him, how he encouraged the crowd at street corners… I had a few moments when I was really touched tonight, to be honest. So, for a few moments, this is really cool.
"And when I was already in the dressing room and saw on the TV screen that he was still doing his lap of honor and doing almost everything good, this is too good."
