Handanovic to return to Inter after announcing his retirement
The Slovenian keeper was a loyal servant to Inter and took over Julio Cesar, who was a part of the treble-winning Inter. But Handanovic stuck with Inter through thick and thin and filled the shoes of Cesar with poise. He is a legend for Inter, and the Nerazzurri fans will be happy with his return. After his inconsistent performances in the last season, he lost the spot to Andre Onana. The Cameroonian keeper, however, decided to leave this summer.
Handanovic has immense experience of playing in Serie A, as he has been in the Italian league since 2004. Despite being born in Domzale, Slovenia, Handanovic has spent the majority of his playing career in Italy. Inter hopes that he will become an important part of their coaching staff.
