Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson claimed Liverpool counterpart Alisson is better than himself and Barcelona’s Marc-Andre Ter Stegen during a press conference before Brazil’s friendly with Colombia in Miami.

All 3 goalkeepers have been nominated in The Best FIFA Football Awards, with the winners to be announced later this month.

Alisson has the edge on his City counterpart in terms of Premier League clean sheets last season, with 21 to his Brazil team-mate’s 20, earning the Liverpool man the Golden Glove.

He played a key part in Liverpool’s Champions League victory, not least the last-minute save he made to prevent a draw against Napoli which would have knocked them out at the group stage.

However, Ederson finished the campaign with more winners’ medals after completing the domestic treble with City, although Alisson will view victory in the Champions League as adequate compensation.

Both the keepers are currently in USA and the Manchester City star spoke highly of his Liverpool counterpart during a press conference in Miami –

“I think the three of us were the best, but I see Alisson one step ahead.”

“He was great in the Premier League, won the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and had a great Copa America as well.

“So I think whoever wins will be deserving and I’m happy for two Brazilian goalkeepers to reach this level.”

“We all know the great period that Alisson is living. And I’m having a good time too. Of course, these are opportunities.

“As a player you must be prepared for everything. I train as if I am always playing, which makes it easier for me to be used.

“I hope to make the best of the opportunities I have here and I’ll give my best.”
