Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho has heaped praise on Ederson’s ability with the ball at his feet. The Brazil star has been a crucial player in Pep Guardiola’s system due to his ability with the ball at his feet.
In the match against Crystal Palace, he was great when called upon as he made two crucial saves to deny the hosts. The Brazilian has 80 appearances to his name and has a whopping 40 clean sheets in the process.
Fernandinho on Ederson:— Man City | Superbia (@SuperbiaProeIia) October 20, 2019
"From the first day he signed his contract I saw him training, and was impressed with him.
The way he attacks the ball, especially in 1v1s… he is a keeper, but as a bonus he plays with his feet. For me he is the complete goalkeeper."

As a result, Fernandinho was full of praise for the player, stating that he has been oozing quality since the day he joined while also adding that his ability with the ball at his feet, coupled with handling, makes him a complete goalkeeper.
"Ederson made also two important saves. If you look at the game overall, we deserved to win from the beginning. We went for it, we found the spaces, we missed a lot of chances. [Ederson] has shown the player he is since the day he arrived," as per AS.
“When the club signed him, in the first training sessions, I was impressed with him. He's a goalkeeper and the club signed him, first of all, to save, but it's a great bonus that he can play with his feet, the quality he has to play with his feet is amazing. To me, he is a very complete goalkeeper."
