Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has been named in team’s squad ahead of their opening Champions League group game against Feyenoord on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old Brazilian needed eight stitches after being caught in the face by a high boot from Sadio Mane during City’s 5-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday.
But the Brazilian joined in training on Tuesday wearing a headguard to protect the affected area.
Pep Guardiola who is hoping to extend his unbeaten record to the champions league said: “After the game, he saw Elderson speaking to the boys like nothing happened,”
“It shows the character he’s got. He is here now and he’s got protection. I have to speak with him tomorrow.”
Ederson could start today Wednesday but, if not, Claudio Bravo is set to deputise.
