Liverpool Youngster Harvey Elliott Reveals Promise He Made About His Haircut
Elliott is touted as one for the future at Anfield and he's already made eight senior appearances for the club since arriving from Fulham last summer.
The 17-year-old stands out whenever he's on the pitch thanks to his ponytail with shaved back and sides combination.
He has now made it official that he'll be chopping it off once he finds the back of the net for the first time.
"I've had it for about two years," the winger told The Athletic. "Whenever I tried to put it up at school, I got told off by the teachers. I couldn't fight against the rules!
"It's not a popular haircut. Some people think, 'Why's he got it like that?' but I like it. I don't think Jurgen [Klopp] is a big fan. Sometimes I've come in with it tied up in a bit of a new style and he has just looked at it and started laughing.
"I've promised the lads that when I score my first professional goal, it's coming off. Initially, I was going to change it for the new year but then I decided that if I was going to change it, I wanted it to be for something more memorable.
"Hopefully, I won't have too long to wait. I can't wait for next season to start."

Elliott joined The Reds from Fulham having made his debut for the London outfit aged 16 years and 30 days, making him the youngest player in Premier League history.
His eight games have mainly been in cup competitions but he did take to the field in a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace in June.
Elliott was then rewarded with his first professional contract two weeks later.
He's already endeared himself to Liverpool fans after turning down the chance to meet Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.
Madrid were keen on signing the Englishman and even gave him a tour of the iconic Bernabeu to convince the youngster to move to Spain.
They rolled out the red carpet and offered to arrange a meeting between Elliott and Ramos.
However, Elliott snubbed the offer from 'Los Blancos' due to the defender's challenge on Mohamed Salah during the Champions League final in 2018.
"Yeah, that's true," boyhood Liverpool fan Elliott admitted. "I turned it down because of what he did to Mo."
