Ferguson was asked about the goalkeeping greats at the launch of his new autobiography.
"Edwin and Peter Schmeichel were two different personalities. Schmeichel was a warrior, he blasted every defender. Edwin was so calm and that was terrific for our defenders. In the dressing room he was forthright, a magnificent presence. He was a free player at the back for us (a good footballer). It was a great buy for us, I just wish I got him when Peter decided to leave at that time."
