Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola called Ederson’s pass the best he’s seen from a goalkeeper.
A long pass from Ederson set up Ilkay Gundogan’s sealer in City’s 3-0 Premier League win over Tottenham on Saturday.
Guardiola previously suggested that the goalkeeper could become City’s penalty taker, such is his skill with his feet.
Having worked with Manuel Neuer at Bayern Munich and Victor Valdes in Barcelona, Guardiola said that Ederson was the best passer.
“With his feet, he is the best. The quality of the pass, I would say, is the best, ”he said.
“Manuel and Víctor were also incredible but the quality of the pass is the best. I would not say who is the best [overall] because I was successful in the past with amazing goalkeepers in Victor, Manuel and Eddie.
That glorious, glorious victory!
