Ederson

believes his style of play is vital in the world of modern football.

The Brazilian goalkeeper, who is on the verge of reaching the record of 100 clean sheets for his club, has had a very good performance in this team since joining City from Benfica in 2017. His special feature is the ability to play with his feet and send passes to his teammates, an ability that is especially welcomed today, and now the Brazilian goalkeeper spoke about the special importance of this ability for goalkeepers in today's world of football.

"Nowadays, having a goalkeeper with good feet is essential in any team that likes to build up play from the back,"

he told Sky Sports.

"I don't think I influenced much. In fact, I have been influenced by other goalkeepers with good feet in the past. But football evolves and players need to evolve with the game as well.

"I just play naturally. It's a matter of concentration. If a goalkeeper misses a pass, there is nobody there who can help you. The goalkeeper is key in our team because we can't make any mistakes in the build-up. But my team-mates offer me a lot of options for the pass, so I'm very relaxed."
