Harvey Elliott has revealed he’s in constant communication with his Liverpool teammates whilst on loan with Blackburn Rovers.
The teenager departed Anfield on transfer deadline day to spend the season at Ewood Park for regular game time.
Elliott started his first Championship match in midweek during Rovers’ 3-1 defeat to Watford and was once again in the starting XI against Coventry City on Saturday.
The Liverpool loanee grabbed his first goal for the club and an assist in a dominant 4-0 win, albeit with the help of a very early red card for the hosts.
Speaking after the match, Elliott has revealed he’s in constant contact with his teammates after every match.
“They’re always messaging me everyday,” he told LancsLive.
“After every training session, after every game, they’re messaging me.
“I still got messages off the players saying good luck, hope you’re well, miss you and stuff like that. So to have them message me is a boost for me as well.”
On his loan spell and the result, Elliott said: “The main result is the key thing here.
“I was just happy to score and contribute to the win. Hopefully, it’s the first of many but I’m just excited to see what happens really.
“It’s only the beginning, I have a long way to go. I’m taking it day by day and hopefully I can put in the performances in training and in matches to show people what I can do.
“Once we went 1-0 up, (we were) not comfortable but we were able to play our football and keep it ticking and then we killed them off.
“A couple of us had a fair few chances that we should have put away but thankfully we put them away in the second half.
“It just shows you what this team has. It has a lot of creative players, a lot of technical players as well and it was a good goal.
“It can be harder as teams sit back, they protect the goal which makes them harder to break down. In all fairness, they done it well in the first half but like every team would they got lucky and we were able to kill them off.
“Everyone has a lot of fun in this team. I think we all play together, we all want to give each other opportunities and there’s an unselfishness in this team but working hard comes with it as well.
“The main goal for me this season is to get the team nearest to promotion really, I think that’s my main goal.
“Help the team and I think Blackburn deserve to be in the Premier League, it’s a great club with great players and even against Watford we proved the quality we have in the team and they’re a decent side as well.”
