I will remember him as a one of the few bright spots during the dark ages of the banter era. I cannot even recall how many times he saved asses of his incompetent colleagues. Handanovic even had one period, where he did not conceded from penalties, I don't recall how many times in a row. He did great, despite being shaky in last few seasons. It's disrespectful to him, that some people think he does not deserve LGI. Personal opinion.

Absolute legend of this club! For many years he was way too good for our team and in his last years he started to lose some of his skills. Wish him all the best, what a successor of Julione he was 🥹🥹

anybody who does 10 or more years for the club, is a legend in my book.

Javier Zanetti

His debut with us was against Torino. I was quite curious because he was Serie A best GK and he had to replace J. Cesar which was a huge boot to fill. I was instantly convinced when he made a flying save and caught the ball firmly effortlessly. And it was the first of many great saves he has pulled off for us.

Personally, I rate his performance against Sampdoria in 2014 as his best game with us:

His second best was against Milan in 2021 when he saved our ass 3 times:

Be that as it may, the quality of his saves is still less than the quality of his character. Just like Zanetti, he managed to stay with us for more than a decade thick and thin. It is very hard to find loyal players nowadays especially when we went through a very turbulent phase. Again, grazie Handa.

I don't wanna distract from outpouring of Handa love, but I guess this means we've more or less sorted the GK situation. I would expect some moves to be made soon.
Imo it actually means we're definitely selling Onana. We need two GKs who can fight for a starting spot and not someone on the twilight of his career who will just play cup games.

Grazie Handa. One of the few shining lights during some very dark times. I’m happy he was able to achieve some success with the scudetto at least

Legend. Shame he wasn't a member of better teams in his prime.

Out of all his amazing saves i will always remember the one against Atalanta in 2015/16. Simply INSANE.

Well, he's no.1 in the number of PK stopped. Not sure about ratio, still great regardless.
Wow ok. I honestly don’t remember when’s the last time he saved a pk.

Holy shit, I can't believe it, this is actually happening.

Can't believe the video tribute did not include any of his triple saves in the Derby when we won Scudetto or the famous Atalanta save.

I'm so grateful to Handa, who he is, the way he performed, his attitude. Everything just perfection. No one compares for me. One of those players whose quality was above Inter's level. He could have left, but it seems like he didn't feel there was anything all that special outside of Inter. Grande. Really sad to see him gone, I was hoping he would retire at Inter.
