In the early 90s I really hated Man Utd. Even as an obviously fantastic keeper it was hard to give Peter Schmeichel more than begrudging respect. Then on April 8th 1996, David Busst horrifically broke his leg in a tackle at Old Trafford. #90sLegendDay
I’ll never forget how the players reacted to that injury. Everyone stopped in their tracks and made helping poor Bussty their only priority. Peter himself was sick on the byline, visibly traumatised by the terrible leg break. #90sLegendDay
Something about the sight of these players reacting this way changed how I saw them. They weren’t just abstract opponents any more; instead they were just human beings, genuinely concerned for one of their own, and in particular I was moved by Schmeichel. #90sLegendDay
