Milan was also a reason to say goodbye: Legendary Samir Handanovic admits he wasn’t too keen on the idea of moving elsewhere
One of the most high-profile news stories of the week was undoubtedly the farewell to football, which was made by Samir Handanovic. The 39-year-old finally hung up his goalkeeping gloves, although – as he revealed – he received several offers to continue his career over the summer.
“I am not the kind of person to post statements on social networks, but of course I trusted my decision to my closest ones. After so many years, the time has come to put my family first. I am completely calm and at peace with myself. I am also happy and content. It is the right time to stop,“, Samir Handanovic told Italian media. The legendary Ljubljana resident continued. I have received a few offers, which I have considered carefully. If I were to accept one, big changes would follow. You should go to another city, another country. In the end, I decided to say goodbye and I will continue to live in Milan. This is my home, and now I can consider myself a Milanese. I am starting the second half of my life in this city.”

I wish Inter all the best and, also because of the role I have played in recent years, I have always thought about many things, not only on the pitch. Only Inter and its good count,” concluded the former Slovenian national team player.
