Spend an evening with legendary football goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel as he celebrates One: My Autobiography. A serial winner and larger than life character with Manchester United and Denmark, Peter rivalled Gordon Banks and Lev Yashin as the world’s greatest goalkeeper.
Now, for the first time, he’s sharing his journey from part-time footballer in the Danish four tiers to Champions League-winning captain.
In conversation for these exclusive events, Peter will be sharing highlights from his decade playing for Manchester United including that last gasp Treble clinching win over Bayern Munich and stories about Old Trafford’s galaxy of stars and visionary manager. He’ll also discuss his time playing for the Danish national team and their remarkable rise to triumph in the European Football Championship in 1992.
However, Schmeichel’s story is no mere litany of triumphs and household names. He’ll reveal some lesser known details of his life - how he nearly died aged 15, and his turbulent relationship with his father.
Peter's own son Kasper emulated him by winning the Premier League with Leicester in 2016, captaining them to win the FA Cup this season and taking over in Denmark’s goal. It is a proud legacy, ensuring that One: My Autobiography is actually the story of two great goalkeeping Schmeichels.
