Former Leeds United goalkeeper Marco Silvestri has won praise after his stunning debut for Hellas Verona.
Silvestri left Leeds in the summer after being pushed out by new arrivals, having only played a back-up role last season.
He was first choice at Leeds for two out of three seasons, and has had to play a back-up role for Verona.
This week he made hid debut in a Coppa Italia tie against Chievo, and emerged as the hero.
Silvestri saved the deciding spot-kick in a penalty shootout as Verona won 6-5.
Silvestri was hailed as 'king for one night' after his heroic display.
The goalkeeper is a former Italy under-21 international and proved his worth to Leeds in a penalty shootout last season as they defeated Norwich City.
He will hope this elevates him towards more first team chances, especially with Hellas Verona now drawn against AC Milan inthe Coppa Italia at the end of December.
Should Leeds have kept Silvestri?
