The Great Dane Goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel

  • Manchester United;
  • Sporting CP;
  • Aston Villa;
  • and also Manchester City.

Schmeichel played professionally between 1981 and 2003. He started his career on a few different Danish sides until eventually joining Brøndby, which is one of the most important teams in the country. The best online betting sites, which correspond to 1xBet, provide the chance to wager on the Danish League and many other exciting competitions.

Joining Manchester United

It should be noted that in the early 1990s, despite being an excellent goalkeeper in the Danish League, Schmeichel was mostly unknown in the rest of Europe. He joined Manchester United in 1991, and many were skeptical about the choice that Sir Alex Ferguson had made by signing him.

Of course, all the skepticism would quickly be proven wrong. Schmeichel’s performances were simply spectacular. He was a key part in the team that won the 1992-93 season of the English Premier League. It should be noted that this was the first EPL trophy won by United under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Not everything was perfect with the Great Dane at United. In fact, he had a heated argument with Ferguson after a match where Schmeichel’s performance hadn’t been the best in 1994. Things escalated so much that Schmeichel was dropped from the team by the coach. Everybody expected that he would leave the team, however, both player and coach decided to leave the episode in the past.

Later career

Schmeichel decided to leave Manchester United right after the Red Devils won the spectacular final of the 1998-99 UEFA Champions League. The best football bets online on 1xBet feature great chances on all the UCL matches.

The Danish keeper decided to join Sporting Lisbon in 1999, where he spent two seasons. However, he later returned to the EPL. He spent time with Aston Villa and even with cross-city rivals Manchester City.

Schmeichel was also a crucial member of his national team. He played 129 matches and even scored a goal. Curiously, a few years later, Kasper Schmeichel, the son of Peter, would become the undisputed starting goalkeeper on the Danish squad. Currently, on 1xBet, the best online football bets are available, which also feature the Denmark squad and many others.
