Real Madrid hero Iker Casillas has included Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson in his list of top five current goalkeepers. The Los Blancos legend, who retired while at Porto in 2020, unsurprisingly chose current Madrid and ex-Chelsea shot stopper Thibaut Courtois as his number one after lifting the Champions League in May following an incredible performance in the final against Liverpool.

Next on his list is Ederson. The Brazilian has picked up three successive Premier League golden glove awards and has won four titles, an FA Cup and four League Cups since his 2017 arrival from Benfica.

Eddie has been brilliant since he came to Manchester.” Controversially, Casillas left out Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson — who shared last season’s golden glove and made it to the Champions League final — and Chelsea's Edouard Mendy, who was awarded UEFA goalkeeper of the season after last year’s European triumph.
