After a season as club manager, Dejan Stankovic bids farewell to Inter and embarks on the next stage of his career.
"It's time for another goodbye – or farewell, we should say. Dejan Stankovic is leaving our club to set out on a new professional challenge.
He wore the Nerazzurri shirt with pride for 10 long years, helping to write some of the greatest chapters in our club's history. He was part of a world-beating side that won five league titles, four TIM Cup, four TIM Supercup, a Champions League and a Club World Cup.
His honours list does justice to the player he was and the warrior spirit he showed in defending the Nerazzurri colours both on and off the pitch. One battle after another. After making 326 appearances during his playing career, last season he returned to experience the Nerazzurri universe from another perspective, as club manager.
Now he's set to move on to pastures new, in the knowledge that his special bond with Inter will never end. "I'm glad to have been able to do my bit for this club as an official,” Dejan explained. “Inter is my home and this has been a wonderful experience which I'm sure will help me in the next stage of my career. We're going different ways now and new challenges lie ahead but I'll always carry these colours in my heart.”
Once an Interista, always an Interista! Thanks for everything, Deki and best of luck in your future career".
