Liverpool’s Harvey Elliott has posted a message of apology on Instagram after a video emerged online of him appearing to mock Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
The video was recorded following Tottenham’s defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League final on June 1st.
Elliott appears to deliver an offensive impersonation of Harry Kane whilst also using the words “f*cking mong” as a caption.

The 16-year-old was a player at Fulham when the disgusting incident happened and is said to be a boyhood Liverpool fan (Liverpool Echo).
There is absolutely no place for this behaviour in football or in society in general and one would hope that the Football Association throw the book at the player regardless of his age.
He wrote: “I would just like to wholeheartedly apologise for any offence caused on the back of a video of me currently circulating on the internet.
“The video was taken whilst messing around with friends in a private environment and was not directed at any individual but I realise that my actions were both immature and senseless.
“I would like to stress that the contents of the video do not represent who I am as a person or how I’ve been brought up, and I am truly sorry.”
Elliott became the youngest-ever player to feature in the Premier League towards the end of last season when he played for relegated Fulham against Wolves aged just 16 years and 30 days and is now hitting the headlines for all of the wrong reasons, and rightly so (Telegraph).
