Former Leeds United goalkeeper Marco Silvestri has taken to social media to blow his own trumpet after he made a superb save in action for Hellas Verona against Pescara in Serie B.

Silvestri moved to Hellas Verona from Leeds in the summer of 2017 and after a difficult first season in the Serie A with the side, the custodian is now the first choice for the club in the second tier of Italian football.

The 27-year old’s stunning save from close range came in the second minute of the game and it kept the scores level.

Hellas Verona eventually went on to win the game 3-1 as they scored twice in the first half and made the scoreline look one-sided with a goal in the second half, before a Leonardo Mancuso strike for Pescara reduced the deficit.

Silvestri took to social media to show off his save, including a cold emoji to highlight his cold blooded ability to cope with the situation.

Much was expected of Silvestri when Leeds snapped him up from Chievo Verona in 2014 and he was handed an opportunity as the side's number 1.

He kept his spot between the sticks for two seasons until the arrival of Garry Monk in 2016 saw Rob Green installed as the first choice custodian.

Leeds are currently looking for a new goalkeeper to sign in January as youngster Bailey Peacock-Farrell is the only senior shot-stopper at the club.

Silvestri has made 13 appearances in Serie B so far this season, keeping a single clean sheet.
