MILAN – Samir Handanovic is an Inter player. The Slovene goalkeeper has completed his permanent transfer from Udinese now that all the necessary paperwork has been delivered to the Lega Serie A.
Born in Ljubljana on 14 July 1984, Handanovic came through the ranks at Slovenian outfit Domzale (2002/03) before being promoted to the first team in 2003/04. Udinese brought him to Italy in and loaned him to Treviso at the start of the 2005/06 season. He moved again on loan to Lazio in January 2006 and then Rimini, playing a key role in their 2006/07 Serie B campaign. Handanovic retuned to Udine in 2007/08 and established himself as the Friulans’ first-choice keeper, making a total of 179 appearances for the club. He made his debut for Slovenia in 2004 and has since become a mainstay of the national side.
