Ederson Criticizes Player of the Season Vote Exclusion


Ederson performance in response to Rodri’s exclusion from player of the season vote

Premier League Player of the Season shortlisting of Rodri was deemed “unacceptable” by Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson, who went on to say that he will be rooting for Phil Foden to take home the trophy.

Foden is now among the players being considered for the team, alongside Erling Haaland, Ollie Watkins, Declan Rice, Martin Ƙdegaard, Cole Palmer, and Alexander Isak, thanks to his 13 goals and eight assists this season. The Englishman was honored earlier this month as the Men’s Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers’ Association.

As a key player for a Manchester City team that has a chance to win their fourth straight title this weekend, Rodri’s omission from the nominations has surprised Ederson.

During Rodri’s suspension, City suffered league losses to Wolves, Arsenal, and Aston Villa. He has now gone 48 games without making an appearance for a Premier League losing team.

There are solid players, but I think Rodri would be a fantastic addition to the roster if he were included. Like you, I can’t fathom why he isn’t included. “To be honest, that’s not acceptable,” Ederson told ESPN Brasil.

It is ridiculous that he isn’t on the list when you consider his campaign, his year on the field, and the previous several seasons. Great players are also competing, though I am not sure how they choose the nominees. Unfortunately, Rodri isn’t on the list, even though I think he would be a fantastic candidate to win.

Since Phil has been instrumental in our success this season, I will be cheering for him to take home the trophy. He has been more important to the team’s success, consistent, and has scored more goals and assisted on more goals this season.

The choice to exclude Rodri from the Premier League player of the season semifinals caught Ederson off guard. If Getty City beats Tottenham and West Ham in their last two games, they can clinch the title on Sunday. According to Ederson, Pep Guardiola has adapted his coaching style in response to his team’s consistent success, which would be Pep Guardiola’s sixth championship in seven years.

“There is always room for growth and change. And I’ve changed too, just like he has, and he’s getting older and hairier. “But now I see him as a coach who is more composed,” he remarked.

As a team that has been together for quite some time, the other members are accustomed to our style of play, so we don’t spend too much time training; instead, we focus on the fundamentals. Our work and our impact on the pitch are greatly enhanced by that. Therefore, I perceive a more laid-back coach in that regard.

For the second year in a row, City have been in title contention, but Arsenal are one point ahead of them despite having played one more game. Ederson thinks the defending champions will prevail thanks to their experience at this point in the season, especially against an Arsenal team that is hoping to end their club’s 20-year title drought.

It was almost identical on our two prior encounters with Liverpool, and this year is no exception. To secure our championship, we must triumph in the last two games.

That’s where the mindset that this group has developed becomes crucial. Therefore, we are a seasoned group that has been through this before, and we can certainly pull it off again.
