'I Would Play Outfield if Asked!’ Admits Ederson
Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson says he would play outfield if Pep Guardiola asked him to. The Brazilian has earned plaudits since moving to the club from Benfica during the summer- most notably for his impressive passing range.
Ederson reveals that he began his career as a left-back, which explains his passing range, “When I started my career, I was actually a left-back and I do have some qualities playing with my feet, so I think that helps a lot, especially due to the way we play at City.
“It’s a huge responsibility to play at the back, there is no room for mistakes, so I must be constantly focused to give my best. It is all about hard work and concentration.
“Our team has been able to play such great football, but we work very hard making sure we understand our roles and duties.
“Everything we have been practicing in the training sessions, we have brought it into the games and I strongly believe that if we keep going, in the same way which is our goal, we can go even further and win a lot more games.
“But if there was a situation where I was ever needed outfield, yeah, I’d definitely give it a go!”
