With Manchester United on course for their lowest Premier League finish in the first season since Alex Ferguson’s retirement Janes Jerseys takes a look back at what we consider to be Manchester United’s greatest team since the formation of the Premier League.
Peter Schmeichel (1991-1999)
Peter Schmeichel is arguably Manchester United’s greatest EVER goalkeeper and one of the best goalkeepers the world has ever seen.
Schmeichel joined from the club from Bronby for the bargain price of £505,000 in the summer of 1991 and made his Manchester United debut in a 2-0 victory over Notts County.
Schmeichel helped the club win their first league title for 26 years in the inaugural season of the Premier League keeping an impressive 22 clean sheets.
Schmeichel went on to five Premier League titles, three FA Cups and one League Cup.
He also famously captained the team to the Champions League trophy in his final appearance for the club.
During his eight years with Manchester United Schmeichel made 392 appearances keeping an incredible 178 clean sheets and famously scoring one goal against Rotor Volgograd. Rocket League Fans Are Petitioning To Get Psyonix To Add Tesla’s New Cybertruck
He became the first goalkeeper to keep 100 clean sheets in the Premier League when he kept a clean sheet against Crystal Palace on.
Schmeichel won the UEFA goalkeeper of the year in 1992, 1993, 1997 and 1998.
