After eleven seasons, the Slovenian goalkeeper is leaving Milano


A point of reference, a leader in the changing room, a courageous captain. Samir Handanovic has been all of these things in the eleven seasons he’s defended the Nerazzurri goal. He joined the Club on 9 July 2012 and, from the very first minute, displayed his exceptional technical qualities and charisma, going on to become one of the best goalkeepers in Inter’s history. The 166 clean sheets he kept in 455 matches are proof of this. Thanks to these extraordinary numbers, Samir drew level with Ivan Ramiro Cordoba (455) in tenth place in the all-time Nerazzurri appearance ranking across all competitions. It was a historic and prestigious achievement for the Slovenian shot-stopper, who sits second in terms of number of appearances made by foreign-born players in Serie A history. Indeed, only Javier Zanetti (615 matches, all of which were with Inter) is ahead of him in this particular list. Furthermore, he holds the record for the number of penalty saves in the Italian top flight: 32. No one in Serie A history has matched this total.

He’s had an extraordinary career, winning the 2020/21 Scudetto, the Coppa Italia twice and the Supercoppa Italiana on two occasions in Nerazzurri colours.

The Inter fans and all of the Nerazzurri family wish Handanovic all the best and appreciate everything he’s done.

Thank you, Samir!
