Video: Rosler tests Marco Silvestri and Leeds goalkeepers with his own free-kicks

The Leeds boss took a pro-active approach when putting his shot stoppers through their paces.

Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler was so keen to test his goalkeepers the right way on Friday afternoon he took his own free-kicks against the shot stoppers in training.

Indeed, the German can be seen above putting the likes of Marco Silvestri, Charlie Horton and Ross Turnbull through their paces in practice.

Rosler's shots were hit and miss - some found the bottom corner, others failed to hit the target. None of them were quite Souleymane Doukara's miss against Tadcaster, however!

More importantly, Leeds' goalkeepers look like they still need a few weeks of training ahead of the news season... which is exactly what they'll be getting. Either that or the stoppers didn't take Rosler's shooting abilities all that seriously. Not that they looked too out of sorts.

The Leeds boss has recently made it clear Silvestri will be the Whites' no.1 this season, although Turnbull is there to challenge as well as support the Italian.

When it comes to shot stopping, the 24-year-old usually has no problems, although it is his ability in the air from crosses that has been questioned. Perhaps Rosler, Turnbull and co can put an end to those worries next term.
