Liverpool’s Harvey Elliott backed Pascal Struijk after Leeds United lost their appeal against his red card in the clash between the two teams in the Premier League.
Strujik was sent off for a strong challenge on Elliott in the second half of Leeds’ 3-0 defeat at Elland Road, which left the midfielder with a dislocated ankle.
Repeats showed the defender clearly won the ball, but the Whites saw themselves trying to get the red card dismissed, which elicited an empathic response from Elliott.
The Liverpool star wrote on Instagram: “Sorry about this Pascal! I think it’s wrong! But it’s over soon brother and you will be back soon. Keep positive.”
