Outrageous Compilation Of Ederson's Passing Is Box-Office, He Could Genuinely Play In Midfield

An outrageous compilation of Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson's greatest passes has emerged following a remarkable pre-assist vs Paris Saint-Germain.

The Brazilian played a key role in City's opener on Tuesday night with a delightful cross-field ping to Oleksandr Zinchenko.

It was his cross that allowed Riyad Mahrez to open the scoring, but it all started from the back with Ederson.

He's proven since arriving in England that he isn't afraid to use his feet and this season has seen the 27-year-old take it to another level.


City's possession-based style fits Ederson perfectly and the subtle passes can be just as impressive as hoofs upfield.

Ruben Dias and John Stones are often open to retaining possession while deep and full-backs such as Kyle Walker and Zinchenko can bomb forward.

A forward who always seems to benefit is Sergio Aguero, with the Argentine's latching onto any lobs with perfect accuracy.

Fans have been debating Ederson's credentials online and they think he could be the best technical goalkeeper in history.

One fan commented: "Ederson is such an amazing goalkeeper man, what a ball."

Another said: "Ederson is the best at long range passes into the other half, period."

While a third added: "Paul Scholes watches Ederson passing compilations pass it on."

Rio Ferdinand provided punditry on the game for BT Sport and delved into City's slick move - claiming it was 'planned' prior to the contest.

Per MEN he explained: "I think that's planned, I think that's something they've worked on," Ferdinand told BT Sport at half-time.

"Before this goal was scored, there's a clip we'll show at the end of the game which was almost identical to that.

"Zinchenko really high, Walker slightly deeper and it was on. It was definitely planned before the game."

Former City goalkeeper Joe Hart then chimed in with: "That's not normal what he's (Ederson) done there, let me tell you that.

"That's off one step, he's capable of it. He's put it on a sixpence for Zinchenko.

"What a moment - yes it's on, we all see that now, but to execute that at the highest level is brilliant."
