Peter Schmeichel has revealed his two greatest achievements as a professional footballer, with the keeper sighting United's treble victory alongside winning the European championships with Denmark as the highlights.

Schmeichel is thought to be one of Sir Alex Ferguson's best signings of his career, with the keeper taking the Red Devils to unprecedented success in the 1990s.

And with the stopper long retired, he has had time to think about which moments where the best ones of his professional footballing life, and Schmeichel pins down both United and Denmark as providing him with some of his greatest memories.

"I'm one of the lucky guys, I played with some of the best players in the world and we achieved so many things," he said.

"I was playing for my country when we managed to win the European Championships in 1992 - that was a great achievement and is something that is going to stay with me for the rest of my life as one of the highlights.

Peter Schmeichel says his best moment with Manchester United was winning the treble.

"I also took part in winning the first championships for Manchester United in 27 years, and in my last year at Manchester United in 1999, we won the treble which is something that is so difficult to do and requires so much luck and skills, but we did that.

"Those things are the highlights of my career and something that I will look back on with so much pleasure for the rest of my life."

Schmeichel left United on a high in 1999, and the English giants went on to continue their success and eventually take over from Liverpool in their league title count.

But the keeper, who was purchased for the bargain price of £500,000, had a big hand in taking the club to their glory in the early years of Ferguson's reign as the Scot found his feet.

The superstar's son, Kasper Schmeichel, currently plays for Leicester City as a keeper and the 25 year old is touted for big things.
