Ex-Leeds United goalkeeper Marco Silvestri continued his excellent reputation of saving penalties – and posted a video on Twitter.
The 27-year-old left Leeds in the summer of 2017 to join Hellas Verona, where he has since remained. He is best remembered at Elland Road for his penalty-shootout performance against Norwich.

The Italy Under-21 international impressed at Verona, where he has become the club’s first-choice goalkeeper. Verona are in Serie B, currently sitting in fourth.
Posting on his Twitter account, Silvestri reminded Leeds fans of his penalty-saving ability. He stopped an effort from Foggia’s Pietro Iemmello in the 61st minute, as the two sides drew 2-2.

Silvestri joined Leeds in the Massimo Cellino era, and clocked up 98 appearances.. He conceded just 123 goals, keeping 23 clean sheets.
Meanwhile, Bailey Peacock-Farrell retains the number one shirt at Elland Road. Some rumours, though, have suggested that the Whites could look to sign a new goalkeeper in January.
