Ederson Not Ready To Throw Towel In On Title Bid
Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson says he is not ready to throw the towel in on his side’s title defence just yet- even though they trail current leaders Liverpool by 14 points.
The Reds have dropped only two points out of a possible 51 so far this season, leaving their challengers trailing in their wake. But Ederson won’t give up just yet.
“We know the gap is big, but we need to carry on with our job. We need to keep giving our best on the pitch, trying to win game by game.
“We know it’s going to be very difficult – Liverpool are having a great season – but in football anything can happen. We need to be ready for any outcome.
“I’m the type of player that only focus on my team. Obviously, at the last stages of the season, you also focus on the other contenders for the title race, but there is still a lot of the championship left.
“I’m a player that usually focus on my team, try to give the best for my team-mates, and I don’t look much at what the other teams do.”
The Brazilian also says that he enjoys a good relationship with international teammates from Liverpool. “I have a good relationship, not only with Alisson (Becker) but also with (Roberto) Firmino and Fabinho.
When we have a day off in the same day, we sometimes gather, we have a barbecue.
“It’s difficult with our routine and the amount of games to have the same day off, but we have done it a few times before. Our rivalry is only on the pitch.”
