Samir Handanovic called time on his 11-year stint at Inter in the summer upon the expiry of his contract at Giuseppe Meazza. According to Calciomercato, the former Slovenian goalkeeper is on the verge of taking a new role at the club now that he has retired.

Handanovic hung up his gloves ahead of the 2023/24 campaign. However, he hasn’t left the club despite being linked with a short-term move to Lazio. The 39-year-old has been working as a goalkeeping scout these past few months. Inter plan to reward their loyal servant with a more prominent role.

Currently tasked with scouring the continent for the most exciting goalkeeping talents, Handanovic eyes up a coaching job at Inter. Whether as a goalkeeping coach or a manager, the ex-Slovenia international seems destined to join the club’s hierarchy once he undergoes all necessary preparations.

Indeed, Handanovic is about to travel across Europe to master his coaching skills and learn a new trade. While doing so, he’ll remain a goalkeeping scout at Inter. It’s uncertain how long it will take to perfect this new craft and get a license, but once it’s done, he will assume coaching reins at Under-15 or Under-16 level.
