Harvey Elliott responded to a Sky Sports post on social media to say that the decision not to reverse Pascal Struijk’s red card after Leeds’ call was “wrong”.
Leeds failed to appeal against the red card given to Struijk for a tackle which left Liverpool’s Elliott in need of surgery on a dislocated ankle.
Struijk was sacked for the challenge against the 18-year-old Liverpool player which resulted in him being taken on a stretcher.
Struijk will now be suspended for Leeds’ next three matches.
In response to the confirmation that the red card will stand, Elliott responded to Sky Sports’ Instagram post: “Sorry about that Pascal – I think that’s wrong!
“But it’s going to explode soon brother and you’ll be back in no time to break it again. Stay positive.”
Elliott is set to return to action this season, according to the Liverpool club doctor, after the midfielder underwent successful ankle surgery on Tuesday.
Club doctor Jim Moxon told the Liverpool website: “We will not put pressure on him by setting a specific deadline beyond being able to confidently say we expect him to return later. in the season after our rehabilitation program. “
Marcelo Bielsa’s side will travel to Newcastle on Friday and then to Fulham in the Carabao Cup four days later before hosting West Ham the following Saturday.
