The City goalkeeper was guilty of an absolute howler on Saturday afternoon as he dawdled with the ball on his own goal-line before Sadio Mane charged him down and scored for Liverpool.
Pep Guardiola’s side had already gone a goal down inside the opening 10 minutes after Ibrahima Konate headed the Merseysiders in front after connecting with Andy Robertson’s corner. And City’s afternoon got worse eight minutes later.
The ball was passed back to Steffen as City looked to play out from the back. But the 27-year-old took an age to take decisive action as Mane raced towards him. And before the shot-stopper could clear his lines, the Senegal international slid towards the ball and deflected it into the goal.
How did social media react after Zack Steffen’s howler?
We take a look at What Man City fans are saying about this Steffen’s awful error!
“Steffen you ain’t Ederson”
“ Without doubt the worst keeper we’ve had in a long, long time..”
“Goalkeepers dont even need rotation , why would Pep not just play Ederson .”
“Mate that is not just Zacks fault, it’s a joke how we are playing at the back there..”
“What was Steffen thinking does he knows he plays with Liverpool”
