Whether you think David de Gea is a better goalkeeper than Ederson or not, the Manchester City goalkeeper can now indisputably claim to be able to kick the ball further than his Manchester United counterpart.
With the Premier League crown already under their belt, Manchester City players seem to be searching for ways to earn more laurels. Goalkeeper Ederson Moraes, for one, got his name etched in the Guiness Book of World records in the past week.
Ederson broke a Guinness World Record for the longest football drop-kick on Friday. The Brazilian surpassed the previous mark which stood at 75 metres.
The 24-year-old was given three attempts to kick the ball further than the mark. He managed to set a new record in his third and final attempt with a kick that covered a distance of 75.35 metres.
