'Why me? How could a boy from a Copenhagen tower block say I want to be champion with Manchester United and Denmark and make it happen?' Frank and conversational in tone, honest and unsentimental, this is the biography of Peter Schmeichel and his exceptionally successful goalkeeping career alongside the remarkable story of a family. Schmeichel is a giant of football who won more Premier League titles (five) than any player in his position, and captained Manchester United in the incomparable, last gasp Treble, clinching a win over Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final. In his book he takes us inside the remarkable, winning environment of a club that transformed football during the 1990s, and on to the pitch on that crazy, breathless night in Barcelona in 1999. From Sir Alex Ferguson's unique gifts, to Eric Cantona's unique personality, he delivers a close-up and insightful portrait of United's Golden era. But the biography goes way beyond the pitch. Schmeichel has an incredible family story to tell, starting with his father, Antoni, a brilliant Polish jazz musician who battled demons and for years kept a momentous secret from those around him. And he explores what he has been able to pass on to his own son, Kasper, himself a Premier League-winning goalkeeper and number one in the Danish national side. Schmeichel won ten league titles, three FA Cups and nine other major trophies in a club career spanning 19 years, 748 games and 10 goals - no ordinary goalkeeper. Ferguson paid just £505,000 to sign him in 1991, and hailed him as 'The bargain of the century'. 400 page paperback, many photos including colour.
