Ederson Moraes makes a comeback to the training ground
Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes is back in training after making a quick recovery from his kick to the face in Saturday’s 5-0 win over Liverpool.
Ederson, who was given eight minutes of treatment and carried off on a stretcher after he was caught in the face by the studs of Saido Mane in an incident which saw the Liverpool striker sent off, trained once again with his Manchester City team-mates ahead of their Champions League clash with Feyenoord on Wednesday.
The goalkeeper, who trained with his team-mates on Monday, was sporting a skull cap ( protective helmet ), similar to those used by Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech, as City were put through their paces on Tuesday morning.
Yesterday, images of Ederson’s freshly-stitched wounds surfaced on social media. The Brazilian required eight stitches in a facial injury and was given oxygen on the pitch but did not break a bone or suffer concussion.
Ederson still has nasty cuts on his face and City’s medical staff will assess how they are healing before making a final decision on whether to allow him to play or to go with Chilean international Claudio Bravo.
