Ederson: I could play outfield for City

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has been outstanding since his arrival at the Etihad, and many believe he has played a key part in the side’s dominance.

Ederson looks incredibly comfortable at playing out from the back, with him being widely regarded as the best in the league at it.

He has had calls for him to play out of goal, and the 24-year-old believes he would be capable of doing so if it was necessary.


“Well, if one day I am needed I think I could!” he told mancity.com.

“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 practising 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!”
