Handanovic: Inter must atone for humiliating season

Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic believes his team-mates must use last season’s “humiliation” as motivation for the new campaign.

The San Siro club finished a disappointing ninth in Serie A last term under Andrea Stramaccioni, their worst final league position since the 1993-94 season.

And Handanovic, who made 47 appearances in his debut campaign following his arrival from Udinese, says the Inter squad must do better next time around.

“In my opinion, nothing happens by accident,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“Even negative seasons like our last one can be useful. We need to restart without forgetting those mistakes and the humiliation.

“The fact that we have no European commitments this time around will be, I think, an advantage. But for now we only need to think about working hard and then we’ll see how far we can go.”

Stramaccioni lost his job as a result of Inter’s poor performances last term, with Walter Mazzarri recruited from Napoli as his replacement.

Handanovic says he is looking forward to working under the Italian, who led the Naples club to second in Serie A in 2012-13.

“I think Mazzarri’s career speaks for itself,” he added. “He’s an experienced coach. He hasn’t been with us for very long, but there will be time to get to know each other.

“Every coach’s career speaks for itself, just as it does for players. He’s certainly someone who never backs down.”
