Everyone at Manchester City feared the worst when they saw him fall on the pitch, hit – inadvertently – by Sadio Mane. Ederson had to be substituted, but just a few days later he was back in action at Feyenoord, even with a protective mask covering the eight stitches on his face.
I felt a strong kick, but I was always conscious. I knew it had been a long cut. I wanted to keep playing but, for medical issues, I couldn’t keep playing
the Manchester City goalkeeper told reporters, remembering his injury in the game against Liverpool.
But I was always conscious, even if I had my face a little bit swollen. But after a week it was normal again. In the same week, I was ready to play in Champions League. I faced that game full of confidence again, without any fear and happy for the result we achieved
Ederson said. As for Mane, he revealed that the Liverpool winger got in touch with him, and that things between them are absolutely fine.
Yes, I had contact with him, he sent me a message. I told him to stay calm, those things happen inside the pitch, it could happen anytime. I told him to not worry and wished him a good season
the 24-year-old keeper said.
