Liverpool star Harvey Elliott receives 14-day ban for offensive Harry Kane video
The 16-year-old posted a clip on Snapchat mocking the Spurs star during the Champions League final, calling him a ‘f****** m***’.
Elliott has admitted the FA charge and will now be banned from playing until October 24.
“Harvey Elliott has been suspended from playing in all domestic club football for a period of 14 days, running up to and including 24 October 2019, after admitting a breach of FA Rule E3 in relation to a video posted on social media and providing a public apology,” an FA statement read.
“Language and/or behaviour in the video breached FA Rule E3(1), as it was abusive and/or insulting, and constituted an ‘Aggravated Breach’, which is defined in FA Rule E3(2), as it included reference to a disability.
“The Liverpool FC winger must also complete a face-to-face education course and pay a £350 fine.”
Elliott apologised for the video back in July, claiming the comments weren’t reflective of his personality.
“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,” he said.
“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 was signed by Liverpool over the summer and impressed in the Carabao Cup earlier this season for the Reds.
“I can say many positive things about the boy because we have signed him and he decided to join us when he could have gone pretty much anywhere,’ Jurgen Klopp said over the summer.
“He wanted to be part of Liverpool because of his talent. Now that he is here, let’s work with him.
“He needs game time, we have to see where he will get that.
“He is obviously a fine, fine footballer – that is the reason why we were really interested.”
