Schmeichel Is My Hero – Casillas

Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas says Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel was his hero growing up.

Casillas was speaking with UEFA and was asked his favourite keeper when he was a youngster.

“Peter Schmeichel. I grew up when he was playing. I vaguely remember the European Championship in 1992, when Denmark were included at the last minute and the players were on holiday.

“Schmeichel had a fantastic tournament. That was when I started to follow his career. At Manchester he was an example to follow as a goalkeeper.”
