Inter Milan’s goal-keeper Samir Handanovic on Tuesday said that wearing the captain’s armband is always a privilege and also something to be proud of as a player. He opened up on what it feels to be the captain of the side as he quoted on the club’s official website “Wearing the Inter shirt and being the captain of this Club is a privilege, it’s something I’m proud of. I’m telling my teammates to hang in there, to make the most of the time they’re currently spending with their families as we wait to return to the pitch to fight together,”
The world is currently dealing with the deadly coronavirus pandemic, with all the sporting events coming to a halt with some of the events either getting postponed or some getting canceled this year.
Last month after a win over the Rapid Vienna by 0-4, Samir had reacted by saying:
“The captain’s armband? It is not a noble title or trophy but it is still a great responsibility and privilege. It is important for me but I hope to help my teammates. It doesn’t matter who wears the armband. The important thing is that there are 5-6 people who pull the group forward.”
Inter Milan last played against the Juventus on March 9 this month and lost by 0-2 in the Serie A league. However, the outbreak of the Coronavirus has forced the Serie A to be postponed until further notice while the English Premier League has been put on hold due to the pandemic.
The condition in Italy has been very critical with over 1,00,000 cases and 11,591 death so far while Spain has reported over 84,000 cases and over 8100 deaths due to the coronavirus outbreak.
