Ex-Inter goalkeeper Ivano Bordon has spoken out in support of Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic after many fans have called for him to be replaced, according to a report in the Italian media.

Speaking during an interview with FCInter1908, the former goalkeeper explained that the Slovenian is not a problem for Inter and he just needs to regain his confidence.

“This is a topic we have been talking about for a year now. I think it is normal for Inter to start thinking about a substitute, but I am convinced that Handanovic is still up to it and does not represent a problem as we would like to believe.

“He must remain calm and he will be more confident again. He is a goalkeeper who has important qualities. I am confident.”

Ivano Bordon also discussed the recent issues that Simone Inzaghi’s side have had in the Champions League with failing to score goals and kill games.

“I saw very well the team against Atalanta, a little less lucid in the Champions League, but it is not going badly.

“They had good opportunities, even if they don’t always manage to exploit them. In the end you risk paying for it with the opponent’s goal, so this thing has to be fixed.

“Inzaghi knows how to take his players and how to direct them to improve in this aspect.”

Whilst speaking about how Simone Inzaghi has adapted to the Inter job, the ex-Brescia man explained that he has immediately tuned into the environment at Inter.

“Inzaghi took over a team that won the Scudetto and it would not have been easy for anyone. He immediately got in tune with the environment and with the team, proving to be up to the level of a titled club like Inter Milan.”

On Inter’s Turkish midfielder, Hakan Calhanoglu, Ivano Bordon explained that he has to fit in with the team better before he can consistently show his best form.

“Calhanoglu has yet to fit in well with the whole environment. I’m sure he will help the team in the games to come, but now he has to feel comfortable and make himself available to Inzaghi. He has already shown good things, it won’t be a problem.”

As for Inter’s ambitions for the rest of the season, he belives they will get out the Champions League group and still be challenging for the title come 2022.

“I think Inter will still be protagonists: they will get through the Champions League round, even if it won’t be easy, and in the league they will certainly be in the group of teams that will play the title until the end.”
