Incredible Training Footage Shows Ederson Could Be The Best Penalty Taker In The World

Ederson wants to take a penalty if the Champions League final goes to a shootout and judging by his spot-kick training, Pep Guardiola should definitely let him take one.


Ederson has always been mooted to take a penalty for Manchester City who have a somewhat wretched record from the spot.

Guardiola has previously teased his goalkeeper could take one, yet the sight of the Brazilian stepping up has never come to fruition - but fans may finally see him step up from 12-yards against Chelsea tonight.

If the Champions League final goes to spot-kicks like the Europa League final, then Man City could finally unleash Ederson who showed off his technique in training on Friday.

And it's seriously impressive - he has every penalty in the locker; from absolute rockets to cheeky daisy cutters.

Ederson's penalties in training ahead of the Champions League final sent social media wild.

One wrote: "Dude I'm laughing so hard right now that was effortless."

A second tweeted: "That hit the net before the keeper moved! Never seen a pen like it."

A third added: "So we just put him in disguise for each pen yeah after his."

A fourth brought up Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes, saying: "Better than Bruno."

Speaking in the build-up, Ederson revealed that he fancies himself to take the decisive penalty if the game goes that far.

"I am [on the list]," he said. "I don't need to train much, but the fifth one, I'm taking it. The decisive one. I think I'll take the fifth one."
