Ederson Was So Bored Vs Norwich, He Decided To Play In Midfield

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson was so bored against Norwich this evening - he decided to play in midfield for a short while.

Pep Guardiola's side thrashed Norwich City 4-0 at Carrow Road, with Raheem Sterling hitting a hat-trick and Phil Foden also on target as the champions moved 12 points clear at the top of the table.

Ederson was not too involved in the action in East Anglia and only had to make three saves in what was a dominant performance from City.

And in order to cure his boredom in the second half, Ederson fancied a go in central midfield.

The Brazilian always takes a high starting position to snuff out opposition attacks and did just that in the 58th minute.

Then, Ederson decided to have a bit of fun high up the pitch - taking a few touches before passing the ball to Foden and jogging back to his goal.

It was so unbelievably nonchalant from Ederson, who just can't resist entertaining himself in times when he really doesn't have much to do.

Ridiculously comfortable with the ball at his feet and with distribution levels goalkeepers can only dream about, it's not the first time Ederson has had a little cameo in the middle of the park.

Ederson grew up idolising the legendary Rogerio Ceni and played as a full-back before he became a goalkeeper.

He played outfield during a charity game and scored twice - including a calmly taken penalty which showed just why he wants to take one for City.

And he's already gone on record to say he wants to play in Kevin De Bruyne's position.

"If I were to go outfield like this, I would not ask to be a striker. I would prefer to play in the midfield, in Kevin's [De Bruyne] place," Ederson told the club's website.

"In the last minute, it is okay [to play up front], but if I were to choose, if someone asked me to play, I would say; 'Take off De Bruyne and play me'. It would not change anything!"
