Inter Primavera goalkeeper Filip Stankovic has opened up about his feelings about receiving the award of best goalkeeper in the primavera league by SportItalia.

Speaking to SportItalia, as reported by L’Interista, Stankovic explains that he is proud of his accomplishments, and talks about the hard work and attitude that have gone into his performances.

Stankovic is the son of Inter legend and current Red Star Belgrade manager Dejan Stankovic, and the 19-year-old is aware of the weight of expectation placed on him given the accomplishments of his father.

He shows an understanding of the history of the Nerazzurri and of the expectations and desires of the supporters, and demonstrates a maturity beyond his years.

The young Serbian shows that, despite having won an individual award for the quality of his performances with the primavera side, his qualities are also heavily oriented towards working together with his teammates on and off the pitch.

The young goalkeeper said: “I spend many hours on penalties, I practice after every training session. We are very good against penalties, as we see in the matches.”

On the advice imparted by his father:

“He tells me that being a group is the most important thing in football. To never give up, to always be there for each other, on and off the pitch.”

On why he chose the role of goalkeeper:

“I was a midfielder, and my older brother a goalkeeper, then we switched roles, I am a goalkeeper and he is a striker.”

On his experiences in the first-team squad during the scudetto season:

“The scudetto was a very beautiful moment that made me happy. The Players, the club, and Inter fans, they all deserve it.”

On being the captain of the primavera side:

“My task is to stick close to my teammates and to transmit security.”

On his best save of the year, he named this one:

“I think the penalty save against Milan. Beautiful, but above all, important.”
