During an Q&A session with Soccer AM, the Man United legend admitted that despite playing against the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Diego Maradonna, that the toughest opponent he ever lined up against was a Liverpool striker.

For those of a certain age, you won't be too surprised to find out that it's Robbie Fowler. While Schmeichel seemed to relish playing against rivals like Ian Rush and Ian Wright, Fowler always seemed to have his number.
