Ajose, Hunt, Austin: The Leeds United XI that kicked off the Hockaday-Cellino era in the EFL – Where are they now?

GK: Marco Silvestri

Silvestri was signed that summer and arrived at Elland Road to become Hockaday’s first choice goalkeeper.

However, the Italian never convinced at Elland Road despite retaining the gloves for the best part of two seasons with Leeds.

In total, Silvestri made 88 appearances for Leeds in the Championship and a further 10 appearances in the cup competitions.

Leaving for Verona in the summer of 2017, Silvestri remains with the Serie A outfit and has made 65 appearances for them in all competitions.

That spell has been eventful too, with relegation and promotion on Silvestri’s CV. Nevertheless, he appears to have improved since his days at Elland Road.
