Slow Motion Footage Shows Just How Bad Ederson's Collision With Eric Garcia Was
Ederson's collision with Manchester City teammate Eric Garcia looks even more brutal in slow motion.
The Brazilian rushed out of his goal to clear the ball late in the second half of the 3-0 win over Arsenal, with his momentum seeing him crash into his defender with a sickening impact.
Garcia had to be stretchered off with an oxygen mask and was later taken to hospital as a result of the accident, with 11 minutes of stoppage time awarded for the time he was down on the turf receiving treatment.
And when you see the two coming together with the footage slowed down, it's evident that it could have been a lot worse for the young Spaniard.
Pep Guardiola voiced his concerns for the former Barcelona youth player in his post-match interview but confirmed the 19-year old was conscious and had gone to hospital for further checks.
Thankfully Garcia was released from the facility today before heading to the City Football Academy. Ederson, who apologised to Garcia for his role in the collision, also shared a picture of the two shaking hands this morning.
Garcia was making just his seventh Premier League appearance for the club and looked incredibly comfortable, with Guardiola hailing his display at the heart of the backline.
"Eric came back incredibly well," Guardiola said post-match, via the official Manchester City website.
"He is so intelligent to guide the line. It was not easy to play against Aubameyang. He is training really well and we tried to work with Juanma [Lill] and Rodolfo [Borrell] in this period.
"He understands perfectly well. This season, especially in the winter time, he always played good. He doesn't make mistakes. He is always focused.
"In this game, we knew we were playing dynamic players. He understands the position and the movement.
"For this game, we thought he was the right guy to play alongside Laporte and they played really good."
