Schmeichel: I should have spoken to Sir Alex

Schmeichel’s career stretched on for another four years, taking in spells at Sporting Lisbon, Aston Villa and Manchester City, before he finally hung up his gloves aged 39 in 2003.

The goalkeeper made 56 appearances in our Treble-winning season, missing only seven games in all competitions.

He concedes that, had he been more willing to ask Sir Alex if he could share his duties with understudy Raimond van der Gouw, he may not have needed to leave the club to seek mental refreshment.

“I think if I had been less proud and said to him I can’t play every game… even in League Cup games I was p****d off I wasn’t playing,” our former goalkeeper added.
