Inter Milan boss Stramaccioni hails Handanovic after Euro win

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni hailed goalkeeper Samir Handanovic after their Europa League win against Partizan Belgrade.

The Nerazzurri wasted numerous chances before Rodrigo Palacio snatched a last-gasp 1-0 Europa League victory.

“In the first half we suffered with the way they passed the ball around, I won’t deny that,” said the Coach.

“But we knew they were a very technical side. After the break it was an Inter monologue and we created so many scoring opportunities.”

Yet Handanovic needed a crucial save just moments before Palacio broke the deadlock.

“Handanovic’s save was worth three points, every bit as much as Palacio’s goal. I liked the way we went looking for the goal, as we knew that a win tonight would put us in a strong position to qualify. Jonathan impressed me after a few performances in which he didn’t show his true worth.”
