Cut from the same cloth

“He was very shy but had an enthusiasm on the training pitch that was akin to how any boy is playing football with his pals in the park. He scored a goal in training once where he chipped the keeper from such an incredible angle that it was met by silence. All the coaches just looked at each other as if to say: 'Did that really happen?' A phenomenal talent.”

Peter Schmeichel enjoyed unprecedented glory as the great goalkeeper in United's trophy-laden team of the 1990's. The Treble winner is therefore more than qualified to comment on the qualities required to succeed Sir Alex successfully. "David Moyes has been at Everton for more than a decade and he's done a fantastic job. He's Scottish, he's made from the same cloth as Sir Alex and he's the kind of guy you look at and you think 'stability'. Beyond anything else, that is the most important thing for Manchester United."
