For three years, Marco Silvestri was a Leeds United player.

The goalkeeper was signed back in 2014 from Chievo Verona for a small fee of £450k, but, at the time, the Elland Road club were splashing £15m on the likes of Hélder Costa either.

He stayed three years with the Championship side before eventually returning to Italy at Hellas Verona, where he is still the starter to this day and one of the main reasons the club were doing so well in Serie A before everything was suspended by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 29-year-old, currently in the middle of a lockdown, gave an interview to Calciomercato, who asked him what he remembered from his time at Leeds.

He said: “It was a new experience. It gave me so much. It was very educational, I played so much. During my first two years, I featured 92 times”.

Throughout his stay at Elland Road, the goalkeeper made 98 appearances in all competitions for Leeds, conceding 123 goals and keeping 23 clean sheets.

His time in England was his only one abroad, spending the rest of his career before the move on loan to teams like Modena, Reggiana, Padova or Cagliari.
