Leicester’s Kasper Schmeichel has hailed Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson as one of the best in the world.
The Brazilian international has enjoyed another fine campaign for Pep Guardiola’s side, being named in the PFA Team of the Year.
Leicester travel to face City at the Etihad on Monday night, and ahead of the fixture Foxes goalkeeper Schmeichel was full of praise for his opposite number.
“I would say Ederson along with Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Jan Oblak are the three best goalkeepers in the world and have been for a while for me,” he told Sky Sports.
“The way Ederson plays is so brave. To dare to play like that is bravery and it also enables City to play with a much higher press. They are able to really press because they know any ball in behind he will sweep up.
”His bravery in daring to be in those positions, knowing the slightest mistake will cost his team, that’s proper goalkeeping for me and I think he has been the best goalkeeper in this league for a while.”
