Summary

Peter Schmeichel is an undisputed giant of the global game.

He was a serial winner with Manchester United and Denmark, and he rivals Gordon Banks and Lev Yashin for the title of the greatest goalkeeper of all time. Alex Ferguson labelled him 'bargain of the century' when he reflected on the £505,000 Manchester United paid to sign him in 1991. Schmeichel became a key figure in the club's successes during the decade ahead, culminating when he captained United in the incredible, last-gasp Treble-clinching win over Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final.

A complex character, Schmeichel's story is no mere litany of triumphs. In the book, he recalls how he nearly died at the age of 15. The son of a Danish nurse and Polish musician, his own son Kasper has followed him to the sport's summit, winning the Premier League with Leicester and taking over in Denmark's goal.

Author Biography

Jonathan Northcroft, Peter Schmeichel's collaborator on the book, is the Chief Football Writer of the Sunday Times. A Scot who grew up supporting Aberdeen in the Alex Ferguson era, he started his career with Scotland on Sunday before coming south. He is the author of Fearless, an acclaimed book about the Premier League title success by Leicester, including Kasper Schmeichel, in 2015-16.
