Schmeichel's sense of humour emerges in a one-hour Facebook live chat with Courts Singapore's online community yesterday.
What went through your mind when you ran into the penalty box on that fateful night at the Nou Camp, May 1999, when Manchester United were down 1-0 in the closing stages of the Champions League final against Bayern Munich (moments before Teddy Sheringham got the equaliser)?
SCHMEICHEL: Desperation, trying everything to win the game!
Which was the most crucial and memorable save that you have made in your career?
Quarter-final against Inter Milan at Old Trafford, 1999, header from Ivan Zamorano.
You scored many goals in your career, but which one was your favourite?
All of them!
How did you feel to be the first goalkeeper to be caught offside? Strange?
It was a shame because I scored.
Who was the most difficult striker or forward you faced during your career with Manchester United?
Do you think goalkeeping is the most difficult position to play in football?
Yes, of course. Why do you think I played there?
What was the most agonising moment in your career?
Losing 1-0 to Spain on my 30th birthday and missing out on World Cup 1994 in the United States.
What was it like winning the Treble with United in 1999?
It was an unbelievable period of time, and to be part of history in that way is something that I take great pleasure in, even now.
Who do you think is the most outstanding goalkeeper in the Premier League now?
There are quite a few actually. Joe Hart, Pepe Reina, Brad Friedel, David de Gea, Ali Al-Habsi... and the rest of them.
Do you think your son Kasper has what it takes to be the next Great Dane?
I think he's done really well. I'm a proud dad.
How was coaching your son to be like you? Will he ever play for United?
Ask Sir Alex!
Do you enjoy any other sports besides football?
I'm very passionate about golf. I like playing and watching it.
Do you miss any part of football now that you have retired?
