Inter are looking for more leadership from their captain Samir Handanovic as they slump in form and need a decisive influence to give them a push in the right direction.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri want to see the 37-year-old that he can be the real leader in the dressing room.

Handanovic has never been the most vocal captain, preferring a stoic and serious presence to calm the team over shouting and intensity.

When things have been going well, this has been an effective style of leadership as the Slovenian has tempered the team and kept them level-headed.

Now that the team look sluggish and a ways from their best, however, the captain has not yet shown that he can drag the team back to form, and the club are looking for a more impactful contribution from him.

It remains to be seen whether the Slovenian will renew his contract with the Nerazzurri past the end of June, with contract talks not yet resolved, and what his future will look like with Andre Onana set to join next season.

In the present moment, however, Handanovic remains this Nerazzurri side’s captain and leader, and the club want to see him show his emotion and intensity more to push the team in the decisive run-in of the season.
