Peter Schmeichel is an undisputed giant of the global game – and ‘One’ is his story. As a serial winner and larger-than-life character with Manchester United and Denmark, he rivalled Gordon Banks and Lev Yashin as the world’s greatest goalkeeper. Sir Alex Ferguson, having paid just 505,000 to sign him in 1991, hailed him as ‘the bargain of the century’. Schmeichel would become a key figure in United’s successes during the ensuing decade, starting with a first domestic league title in more than a quarter of a century. His silverware spree culminated when he captained Ferguson’s side in the incredible, last-gasp Treble – clinching win over Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final. In ‘One’ he delivers the inside track on that crazy, breathless night in Barcelona and on Old Trafford’s galaxy of stars, including Eric Cantona and David Beckham, not to mention United’s visionary manager.
