Carson, 37, has only played 107 minutes in Pep Guardiola’s first team.

In that time he has won two Premier League winners’ medals, an FA Cup and a Champions League title.

And on Wednesday night he added a Super Cup to his collection, making him a trophy almost every 21 minutes of play.

Carson was an unused substitute when City beat Sevilla 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in Greece.

The goalkeeper, who is behind Ederson and Stefan Ortega in the pecking order, was spotted in the trophy celebrations.

And the fans loved his performance.

One wrote: “Scott Carson has the best job in the world. This guy collects medals just for fun.”

While a second tweeted, “Another day, another winner’s medal for Scott Carson.”


A third wrote: “Has Scott Carson won more trophies than appearances for City?”

And a fourth commented: “Scott Carson is living his dream.”

Another added: “Scott Carson landed an appearance there at Man City. He dusts off winners’ medals without the risk of ever having to play.”

Notably, Carson has won the Champions League with two different clubs.

In 2005 he was Liverpool’s backup goalkeeper en route to Istanbul.

Although he did play in one game in the Reds’ quarter-final win over Juventus that year.

Carson won the competition with Man City earlier this year, equaling Paulo Maldini’s impressive record of 18 years between Champions League triumphs.

Carson has only played two games for Man City.

He played the full 90 minutes as they beat Newcastle 4-3 in May 2021.

The veteran then came on as a substitute for the last 17 minutes in the Champions League round of 16 second leg against Sporting Lisbon in March 2022.
