Man Utd legend Neville: The day Schmeichel apologised to me

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has revealed the day Peter Schmeichel apologised.

Discussing the importance of Christmas parties to team morale, Neville revealed in the Mail on Sunday: "Peter Schmeichel gave me a terrible time when I broke into the first team. And it was on a team day out two years later that he sat me down and said: 'Look, I'm sorry. I thought you were a risk to our performance level and would make too many mistakes.' And then he shook my hand and said: 'I was wrong.'

"And he would never have said that in the dressing room."
