Inter’s second-choice goalkeeper Daniele Padelli has pledged his future to the Nerazzurri after signing a new one-year deal last month.
Padelli made just one appearance last season as Inter beat Benevento 6-2 in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia.
The 33-year-old has supported the club since childhood, though, and wants to continue behind Samir Handanovic beyond 2020.
“I was happy to sign my new deal,” Padelli told Inter TV yesterday.
“I get on very well with Handanovic, Tommaso Berni and all the others. I hope I can stay here for a long time.”
Padelli is training with Inter’s first team at their summer camp in Switzerland and revealed he had ‘positive feelings’ about new boss Antonio Conte.
“I’m tired like the rest of my teammates, but we’re working well and I think we’re on the right path,” the Italian added.
“Our preparation as goalkeepers is pretty much the same as it was before, given that Adriano Buonaiuti has stayed on as our coach.
“We’re putting a lot of determination into training. A few things will change from a tactical perspective but we’re ready to begin another season.”
Padelli also had words of encouragement for Dejan Stankovic’s goalkeeper son Filip, who is training with the first team this week.
“He’s very committed and has a lot of quality,” he concluded.
“If he keeps going as he is then he could become a really important player.”
