Great Dane loves Lion City

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel can't get enough of Singapore.

Staring out the window of the Club Lounge at Ritz Carlton yesterday, the 50-year-old said: "I love this place.

"The last time I was here (in 2012), I had a fantastic time, and I'm sure I'm going to have another great time.

"The place is beautiful. I could just sit here for hours and just look out."

The former Denmark star is in town at the invitation of Sony Mobile. He visited 313@Somerset and Bedok Mall yesterday to meet fans, and will be at the Suntec City Convention Centre this afternoon to help conduct a football clinic.

Schmeichel said he was thrilled with the reception he got from fans yesterday.

He said: "It's when you come out and you physically see them, that you realise might have done something really good in your life.

"It's been so long since I played (but) when you meet people and they tell you you really were an inspiration to them, it's like: Mission accomplished. It makes me really proud."
