VIDEO | Handanovic: saves, numbers and statistics


A statistical review of our captain’s career in Nerazzurri colours, compiled in collaboration with Opta

MILAN - On 31/12/2019, Samir Handanovic ended the decade as the player with the most appearances (368) across all of Europe’s Top 5 leagues in that period. An incredible statistic, which highlights the consistency of our No.1 and Nerazzurri captain. 368 games from 2009, when he was playing for Udinese, to 2019. In the rankings for appearances in Europe’s Top 5 leagues last decade, Handanovic sits in front of Saint-Étienne’s goalkeeper Stéphane Ruffier (362 games), José Callejón (Real Madrid and Napoli, 351), David de Gea (Atletico Madrid and Manchester United, 350) and Eden Hazard (Lille, Chelsea and Real Madrid, 348).

Samir Handanovic’s debut for Inter came almost eight years ago, on 2 August 2012: Inter won 3-0 away to Hajduk Split, with our goals that day coming from Sneijder, Coutinho and Nagatomo. Since then, our Slovenian shotstopper born in ’84 has played 324 games in a Nerazzurri shirt. His first Serie A appearance came away to Torino on 16 September 2012.

Handanovic’s numbers in Nerazzurri colours are incredible, and reflect a consistency and excellence across all of his performances. In terms of games played, our Slovenian ranks third for all-time appearances by goalkeepers in Inter’s history. Only Walter Zenga, with 473 appearances between 1982 and 1994, and Ivano Bordon, 382 between 1970 and 1983, have defended the Nerazzurri goal more times than Samir. With 324 games, Handanovic overtakes Julio Cesar, who ended his time at Inter with 300 games played.

Samir Handanovic has prevented the opposition from scoring on 113 occasions. Our Slovenian skipper also won the award for Best Goalkeeper in Serie A from the 2018/19 season, a year in which he set a personal record for appearances in a season with 49.

So far this season, Handanovic holds an impressive average save rate, stopping 75% of the shots he’s faced in Serie A with just 20 goals conceded. He has saved 14 penalties in his Nerazzurri career, the most recent coming in our 1-1 home draw against Atalanta back in January.
