Manchester City goalkeeper, Ederson has come out to say that he would love to be a midfielder. He recently revealed that he would even want to replace Kevin De Bruyne in the Blues’ midfield.
According to him, he wouldn’t love to be a striker if he could play outfield football because he loves overseeing things from the middle.
Ederson added that he still hasn’t taken a PK in his career and he would love to take one before retiring.
His words, “If I were to go outfield like this, I would not ask to be a striker.”
“I would prefer to play in the midfield. In Kevin’s place!”
“If I were to choose, if someone asked me to play, I would say: ‘Take off De Bruyne and play me!’ It would not change anything!”
On how he would take a penalty, “I don’t know. It depends on the game, what the game brings.”
“Of course the pressure is higher it it’s 0-0. In a penalty shooutout as well. But if you’re winning 3-0 and there’s a penalty, the player is much more relaxed.”
“But I don’t know how I would take it. But I can’t say anyway. I haven’t taken a single one and I won’t be giving hints for the opponents. I hope someday it happens and you will see.”
