Inter have officially confirmed striker Lautaro Martinez as the club’s new captain for the 2023/24 season.
The departures of Samir Handanovic and Marcelo Brozovic this summer have left the Nerazzurri without a captain and the Argentine striker has been the obvious choice to take the armband, having worn it on several occasions last season.
Lautaro has grown into a leading figure for Inter since his arrival in 2018 and reportedly turned down a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia recently in a show of loyalty to the Milanese club.
As announced today, Lautaro is now Inter’s new club captain, with Nicolo Barella promoted to vice-captain. Lisa Alborghetti is the captain of the Inter Women’s team.
The Nerazzurri’s announcement referred to marketing material for the new Barbie movie.
Lautaro has made 238 appearances in all competitions for Inter since his arrival in 2018, scoring 102 goals and providing 36 assists in that time.
