Man City Goalkeeper Ederson Shows Off Nasty Wounds From Sadio Mane Kick

Man City Goalkeeper Ederson Shows Off Nasty Wounds From Sadio Mane Kick

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has been showing off his war wounds following his altercation with Liverpool forward Sadio Mane on Saturday afternoon.

The Brazilian shot-stopper was clattered by Mane in the first-half of the heavyweight Premier League clash, with the referee Jon Moss quickly brandishing a red card in Mane’s direction.

The decision to dismiss the Senegal international has been hotly debated by supporters and pundits ever since the incident, with some even suggestion Ederson might not have been that hurt.

But the 24-year-old is actually in a pretty bad state, as this photo of his bloodied and stitched-up face doing the rounds on social media this afternoon shows:

Perhaps this gruesome snap will help persuade people who doubt it was a red just how brutal the challenge was, albeit was accidental on Mane’s part.

What did you think of the tackle? Does this change your view?
