Promising Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott has been banned from football for 14 days by the FA after an investigation into a video in which he mocked Harry Kane.
The Times’ Paul Joyce revealed this afternoon that Liverpool ace Harvey Elliott has been banned from football for 14 days by the FA after an investigation into a video in which he mocked England captain Harry Kane.
The Athletic’s Liverpool correspondent James Pearce has also shared that the 16-year-old starlet will have to partake in a face-to-face education course, as well as being fined £350.
In the video below, Elliot appeared to call Tottenham’s Harry Kane a ‘f***ing mong’ whilst also seeming to mock his voice:

The video surfaced on social media after Elliott left Fulham for Liverpool, the youngster has been thrust into the spotlight since his high-profile move.
Elliott sparkled on his debut for the Reds in their League Cup clash against MK Dons, this punishment could be seen as quite harsh – we’d hate to see one of England’s brightest talents missing out on potential game time because of this.
