Manchester City’s Ederson, Liverpool’s Alisson and Real Madrid’s Thibaut Courtois have been nominated for the Yachine Trophy which is awarded to the best goalkeeper in the 2021-2022 season.
The award, which was founded in 2019, was won by Liverpool’s Brazilian goalkeeper in it’s inaugural year and to Paris Saint-Germain’s Gianluigi Donnarumma in 2021.
Interestingly Donnarumma, who won Euro 2020 last summer with Italy, does not even make the 10-man shortlist.
