Andre Onana and Samir Handanovic will begin the season on equal footing as they compete for the starting spot in goal at Inter.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi is aiming to give each of the pair an equal chance of making the starting spot their own during the season.

Handanovic was unquestionably first-choice in goal last season ahead of Andrei Radu, but the Slovenian is set to have much stiffer competition for his place in the upcoming campaign in the form of Onana.

The Cameroonian’s arrival on a free transfer from Ajax has finally been confirmed after months of anticipation, and now he is working in preseason training to get acclimated to the team.

Inzaghi’s intention is neither to rely on the experience of his captain Handanovic nor to immediately thrust Onana into the starting spot, but rather the coach will wait and see which player impresses him in training and convinces him, and the two keepers could also alternate.
