Harvey Elliott suspended for 14 days for mocking Kane in video



Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott has been hit with a Football Association (FA) suspension that will see him unavailable for domestic club football for a period of 14 days after a video emerged of him appearing to mock Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

The clip, that was posted on Snapchat and recorded while Elliott was still a Fulham player, shows the 16-year-old derogatorily impersonating the Spurs striker under the caption "F***ing m*ng".

The FA's explanation of the offence committed also suggests that Elliott's words in the video were "aggravated by reference to a disability".

The teenager went on to apologise to Kane for his actions in an update posted on Instagram, writing at the time: "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."

the FA have now released a statement confirming Elliott's punishment which will see him unable to play domestic football until October 24, while he has also been ordered to pay a fine of £350 and complete a "face-to-face education course".
