Inter Failed To Find Long-Term Handanovic Successor In The Summer, Italian Media Argue

Inter have not dealt with the situation of goalkeeper Samir Handanovic properly, and should have signed a long-term successor for the Slovenian in the summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who argue that the Nerazzurri should have brought in a long-term solution to play alongside the 37-year-old this season to ease the transition away from their captain.

Handanovic’s form this season has come under scrutiny, with his display in the Nerazzurri’s 2-2 draw with Atalanta heavily criticized.

There looks to be little option but to play the Slovenian in goal, with Andrei Radu not ready to start regularly and no alternative having been signed over the summer despite efforts to bring in a long-term successor.

Handanovic turned 37 this summer and the club have been considering the future after the former Udinese keeper leaves, but in the end they opted to leave finding a successor until next summer with Ajax’s Andre Onana heavily linked.

The Gazzetta argue, however, that the issue with Handanovic’s poor form right now could have been avoided had the club worked to find a solution which would see another viable option in the position in their squad for the start of this season.
