Ederson is the true example of a modern-day keeper.
The Brazilian possesses a number of skills that qualify for modern-day keepers.
Former England No.1 David Seaman credits Ederson for revolutionizing the way goalkeepers operate from the back.
“Goalkeeping has changed so much recently – just as much as it did when the rule preventing back passes was brought in when I was playing,” Seaman told the Official Man City Podcast.
“What you have seen is goalkeepers try to get used to playing out from the back.
“And when you have a keeper who is really good at it, like Ederson, it really does help.
“Some have done it really well – the two Brazilians (Ederson and Alisson) have done it fantastically.
“In terms of Ederson – now there is a goalkeeper.
“He doesn’t just play it out from the back, he can also set up an attack.
“He has that long, raking pass, and he is so accurate as well.
“But it’s not just about that with him because his goalkeeping is really good as well. I really like the way that he does his goalkeeping.
“He’s not a flash goalkeeper. He’s no show-off, he makes the save and if he has to dive, he dives; if he doesn’t have to dive, he doesn’t dive
“Ederson doesn’t do that… he’s my type of goalkeeper.
