Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has been named on the shortlist of nominees for the 2023 Yashin Trophy.

The Brazilian has just enjoyed a really solid season for City.

The club won an historic Treble, and Ederson played a major part in the club’s success.

While he did not feature in last season’s FA Cup, Ederson played pretty much every game in the Premier League, and was ever-present en route to glory in the Champions League.

And now, the Brazilian has been acknowledged for his fine campaign…

Ederson receives nomination for 2023 Yashin Trophy

The Yashin Trophy is awarded to the best goalkeeper.

It is essentially the Ballon d’Or for goalkeepers, and there are ten contenders for the 2023 award.

They are Ederson, Marc André ter Stegen, Dominik Livaković, Emiliano Martínez, Thibaut Courtois, Aaron Ramsdale, Mike Maignan, Yassine Bono, André Onana, and Brice Samba.

Ederson is definitely in with a shout of winning.

But there could be fierce competition from World Cup-winning goalkeeper Martinez. Bono also gave a very good account of himself at the World Cup.

Ederson has a golden chance of winning Yashin trophy

It will be interesting to see who picks up this year’s award, which will be handed out on October 30.

But there is no doubt about it; Ederson is in with a fantastic chance of winning the award for the first time in his career.

The £35 million man would deserve it.

£100,000-a-week star Ederson played a huge part in City’s Treble win, and his performance in the actual Champions League final against Inter was clutch.

He was also very good in the first leg semii-final against Real Madrid, after which Pep Guardiola branded him ‘exceptional’.

It would amazing to see him win. Because he is such an important player for City and he often gets overlooked because of the amazing things that go on in front of him.
