Maurizio Sarri gives hipster answer when asked about Man City’s most dangerous player

Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri was deadly serious when he said Man City's most dangerous player this season is Ederson

Picking Man City’s most dangerous player this season is no easy task.

You’ve got Kevin De Bruyne, who can’t fall over without assisting someone these days.

Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane are both in the form of their lives while John Stones looks like a new player under Pep Guardiola.

One man who is more qualified than most to give an answer is Maurizio Sarri.

The Napoli boss was in the opposite dugout to Guardiola when City beat Napoli 2-1 at the Etihad in their first Group F meeting.

So who does he most fear, as the two prepare to play each other again tomorrow?

He said: ” Ederson. I’m being serious, because their goalkeeper didn’t miss a single ball out from the back.

“He played 50 balls with the defence and got them all right, playing well through our pressing.”

Well that’s a curveball and a half.

To be fair to Sarri, Ederson’s passing is better than most Premier League midfielders.

Add in the fact that the Brazilian saved a penalty against Napoli and you can see where Sarri is coming from.

So don’t be spooked if Napoli try and man-mark the 24-year-old to stop him from playing. Now that would be taking pressing to the next level.
