Liverpool debutant Harvey Elliott made one young fan’s day when he gave him his shirt shortly after the final whistle of their Carabao Cup clash with MK Dons on Wednesday.
Elliott, 16, made his first start for the club as they progressed to the fourth round of the competition with a 2-0 win.
The teenage winger had a good game but it could have been a debut to remember had it not been for the crossbar.
One young Liverpool fan, Alfie Hughes, ran on the pitch after the game and Elliott kindly obliged with his request to give him his shirt.
The 10-year-old was at the match with his dad but was worried about being arrested.
His dad, Paul, posted a video on Twitter of his son approaching several players before the winger agreed.
Paul told the Liverpool Echo: “Alfie kept saying he hoped the players would come over and I kept saying there might be a struggle because there were a lot of kids where we were sitting.
“He asked if he could go on the pitch and I said yes, as long as he came straight back.
“He was flapping and asking ‘will I get arrested’ but I said no it would be different for an adult and he won’t do it again.
“It was a one-off.”
