what was said

Downing praised Elliott.

“He found himself in the middle, he didn’t do that often for us at Blackburn, maybe once or twice. But he took the position early in the season and played in front of some big players,” Downing said.

“You can see his ability for a young player, he’s quite mature for his age; his style of play and his line-up, he’s not a young player who runs everywhere and is undisciplined, he’s quite mature for his years.

“Going to Liverpool and being coached by Klopp before he went on loan is huge for him because he plays with world-class players every day, the level will be really incredible.

“If he hadn’t injured himself at the start he would have had a tremendous run with the team and you have to give him credit for that. He definitely has the ability.”

Looks a jewel

Downing played with Elliott when he was just 17 and although Downing has played with and against some of the best players in English football history, he was impressed by the youngster.

As the former England international says, Elliott’s ability is for all to see. He doesn’t seem out of place in one of the best teams in the world and at just 18 he has so much room to grow and improve.

Elliott could be an absolute superstar for years to come.
