Guardiola hails Ederson bravery after Mane kick

Pep Guardiola hailed Ederson’s bravery after a nasty collision involving the goalkeeper provided the major talking point of Manchester City’s 5-0 thrashing of Liverpool.

The Brazilian was knocked out after being caught by a high boot from Sadio Mane in an accidental but high-speed clash during the first half of Saturday’s eventful Premier League encounter at the Etihad Stadium.

Mane, who later apologised on social media, was shown a straight red card while Ederson received treatment for eight minutes before being carried off for further assessment at the club’s medical facilities.

He did not suffer concussion and was cleared of serious injury.
