Is Marco Silvestri missing Leeds United? Going by his Twitter activity, maybe.

It's almost a year since Marco Silvestri left Leeds United.

The Italian goalkeeper, who spent three years at Elland Road, left the Whites to join Hellas Verona in his homeland on July 18 last year after struggling for first-team football in West Yorkshire.

Nevertheless, it looks like Silvestri has retained an affinity for United after his wife, Sofia Jamal, released a video of the 27-year-old on Twitter on Thursday, in which he's sporting a pair of Leeds shorts.

Fans of the Elland Road club were quick to notice Silvestri's attire and some supporters suggested that they would like to see him return to the Championship club.

Interestingly, Silvestri and his wife both 'liked' separate tweets relating to a potential return to Yorkshire.

The former Chievo man left Leeds for first-team football but only managed two Serie A games with the Italian side last season.

He could and probably would have played a lot more often had he stayed, after United alternated between Felix Wiedwald, Andy Lonergan for much of the season.

By virtue of how poor both were, Wiedwald and Lonergan have already left the club and maybe, just maybe, Silvestri is regretting his decision to leave.
