The Brazilian goalkeeper triumphed over Al-Hilal’s Bono and Real Madrid’s Thibaut Courtois to secure the prestigious award, a fitting recognition for his pivotal role in Manchester City’s historic Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League treble last season.

This accolade, presented after the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup, reflects Ederson’s outstanding performances throughout the previous season. Manchester City had a strong presence in the awards, with Pep Guardiola named the best coach and the club contributing five players to the FIFPRO men’s World XI. However, Lionel Messi narrowly surpassed Erling Haaland to claim The Best FIFA Men’s Player, preventing a clean sweep.

Ederson joins the ranks of the award’s Brazilian winners, following Alisson’s 2019 victory. Interestingly, Ederson had finished third in the voting during that particular year.

The ceremony on Monday provided a welcome moment of joy for Ederson, who had to exit the field during Saturday’s match against Newcastle due to an injury sustained in a play that was later deemed offside. With the Premier League’s brief mid-season break underway, Manchester City aims to give their goalkeeper ample time to recover before the upcoming league fixture against Burnley on January 31.
