Man Utd legend Schmeichel in talks about Sporting CP coaching job

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel is in talks with Sporting CP.

Correio da Manha says Schmeichel is set to embark on a coaching career after talks with Sporting.

The Dane looks set to accept a goalkeeping coach role with the Portuguese side.

A deal was "very close" to take the 54-year-old back to Lisbon after a spell as a player there.

Schmeichel played for the Lions between 1999-2001, making 66 appearances.

Schmeichel's former manager in Lisbon, Augusto Inácio, is now a club director and has been instrumental in negotiations.
