He formerly played for Benfica (2015-2017) and Rio Ave. and is recognized as one of the top goalkeepers in the world (2012-2015).

Between the posts, Ederson has been regarded as an athletic, commanding, and a physically intimidating goalkeeper who boasts both physical power and good reflexes and shot-stopping abilities. However, he is better known for his distribution and ball-handling skills than for his shot-stopping abilities: his ball control and confidence allow him to keep possession and quickly play the ball out from the back on the ground with his hands or either foot – even when under pressure – or launch an attack with long kicks. He can use either foot, despite being normally left-footed. Former Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given dubbed Ederson “the best goalkeeper in the world with his feet” in 2018 for his distribution, and his range of passing has led to him being dubbed a playmaker in the media.

Ederson, a Manchester City player, is married to the lovely Lais Moraes. They met in 2013 and have been together since. Ederson was at Rio Ave when the two met.

Yasmin Moraes, their first child, was born on the 6th of June 2017. They welcomed Henrique Moraes into their family on September 13th, 2018. Laura Moraes, their second daughter, was born on January 17, 2020. Ederson’s Instagram is full of cute family photos.
