Ederson has trolled Manchester City teammate Kevin De Bruyne after watching a video of David James in outfield action for the champions.
He has also made 195 appearances for City and got his hands on two ‘Golden Gloves’ in that time.
The 28-year-old previously claimed that he would like to take penalties after a video clip of him scoring during one training session went viral.
Now though, the Brazilian has taken those claims one step further.
In a light-hearted interview produced by the club, City sat down their number one goalkeeper and recorded his reaction to several iconic moments from down the years – and it was the appearance former England man James made as a striker, in 2005, that most sparked his attention.
Speaking to the MCFC website, Ederson joked: “If I were to go outfield like this, I would not ask to be a striker. I would prefer to play in the midfield, in Kevin’s [De Bruyne] place.
“In the last minute, it is okay [to play up front], but if I were to choose, if someone asked me to play, I would say; ‘Take off De Bruyne and play me’. It would not change anything!”
Ederson added: “I remember this match. This guy [David James] is mad. He went up as a striker.
“If he made a slide tackle, he would have scored. He should have taken it [the penalty]. That was his moment.”
