Pep Guardiola has given the highest honor to his goalkeeper Ederson at Manchester City.
The City boss was praising Ederson for his incredible pass to Ilkay Gundogan, who scored their third goal against Tottenham over the weekend. “With his feet, he [Ederson] is the best,” he declared. “The quality of the pass, I would say, is the best.
Manuel [Neuer] and Victor [Valdés] were incredible too but the quality of the pass (from Ederson) is the best.
“I would not say who is the best [overall] because I had success in the past with incredible ‘keepers in Victor, Manuel and Eddie.
“It is another example (of the recognition Ederson deserves) – he has credit from the manager, backroom staff and players. He’s outstanding and he knows it.
“But the players know: if you want credit and to be recognised, win games, win titles and you will get it. If you don’t win games and titles, you will not get it. It’s not more difficult than this.”
Ederson has come to the fore of the media plenty of times for his ball skills and it was no surprise to see him thrive again.
