Move over Manuel Neuer and Ederson, there’s a new sweeper keeper in town.
Crotone’s Alex Cordaz went bravely where no keeper has gone before this season- the opposition’s half.
To be fair, he was playing against Serie A’s bottom side Benevento.
The more you look, the better it gets.
For a start he actually runs past one of his outfield team-mates but decides against passing to him.
Then, rather than just hoof the ball, he continues to charge forward.
Despite being a full 70 metres from his goal he elects to carry on and pick a pass.
But Cordaz’s heroics were all for nothing.
Benevento won 3-2, with former Spurs midfielder scoring their first and Bacary Sagna coming off the bench in the second-half.
Cordaz is something of a maverick.
He came through Inter Milan’s academy and played once, in a Coppa Italia tie against Juventus.
The 35-year-old, who’s been at Crotone since 2015, sports a distinctive sleeve tattoo on his right arm.
But he faces a fight to be a Serie A player next season.
Crotone are 17th in the Italian top flight, just four points above the drop zone.
If the attackers aren’t doing their job then why not try and charge forward from your own goal?
