Inter captain Samir Handanovic continues to be an important player for the Nerazzurri, someone with no real backup, and a player who continues to show his quality in important moments.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper il Gironale, who highlight the Slovenian’s contributions at the club.
Handanovic has come in for some criticism this season due to high-profile errors which have put his team in trouble, but as the newspaper points out he has also responded to his critics with vital saves which have saved his team points in away wins against the likes of Fiorentina and Sassuolo.
The Slovenian has made over four hundred appearances for the Nerazzurri, has made 523 appearances in Serie A between his time at Udinese and Inter, and has saved the second most penalties of any keeper in Serie A.
Handanovic will be 38 next summer and the club looks increasingly likely to sign Andre Onana as his long-term replacement, although il Giornale point out that it is plausible that the captain could still stay on in a similar arrangement to Juventus legend who continued at the Bianconeri even after Wojcjech Szczeszny was signed as his replacement.
