Peter Schmeichel has been appointed as an ambassador of Manchester United following a successful career at the club which included the memorable treble in 1999. This role involves attending various events and functions representing the club.
The Great Dane will also play a part in promoting the work that the club does in the community. He joins Sir Bobby Charlton, Bryan Robson and Gary Neville in the position. As you can see from that list, it’s a position given to legends. Peter won five Premier League titles, three FA Cups and a Champions League at United.
Ambassadors are vital when it comes to working with fans, partners and the all round community. When the players and staff are busy on and off the pitch, we need people to keep supporters elsewhere occupied with club matters. Schmeichel is joining three players in the position that have set a real benchmark in what they do for the club to this day.
“It’s a great honour to be an ambassador for Manchester United,” Schmeichel told ManUtd.com. “I spent many happy years at the club and achieved some of my greatest sporting accolades whilst playing here, so I was delighted to be asked to take up this role. I am looking forward to working with United again and sharing my experiences, as well as catching up with some of my former team-mates.”
