Inter captain Samir Handanovic was the best player for his team in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Torino in Serie A yesterday evening in the view of Italian media.
The 37-year-old received a score of 7/10 for his display in the player ratings for the match published in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who note that he was the one truly outstanding player for the Nerazzurri.
Inter had a tough evening against a very organized and physical Torino team who weren’t intimidated by playing at the San Siro and worked hard to disrupt the Nerazzurri’s rhythm and suffocate their play all over the pitch.
The result was that very few Inter players really shone until the closing stages of the match when they finally broke through for a winner, but Handanovic certainly stood out with a string of fine saves to keep his team in the match until they woke up and scored.
Meanwhile, the Gazzetta gave wingback Denzel Dumfries a score of just 5/10 for a performance which saw the Dutchman fail to really impact the game and look even more unsettled by Torino’s defensive approach than his teammates.
