Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has turned it around at United and the club are currently on a 16 match unbeaten run stretching back to January.
However, while club legend Schmeichel stated his former teammate is doing a good job, he stressed there are players that should be moved on in the transfer window.
"There's a few players in the squad that we absolutely do not want there," the 'Great Dane' began.
"They're not there to play for the badge. They're there to create a profile for themselves.
"I was reading about one player trying to make themselves a brand like [David] Beckham which is shocking really. But there are players there that do not belong in the dressing room.
"And I think Ole has done really well in kind of sifting them out of the picture really, so we only get reminded that they're there in a chat like this, or reading about the squad.
"I think he's done an amazing job."
The 56-year-old didn't name the player he was addressing but did name a player he wanted to praise - goalkeeper David De Gea.
De Gea is one of the finest goalkeepers of his generation but has made a number of high-profile mistakes in the last few years.
Despite this, Schmeichel stressed that United should stick by the Spaniard.
"David is our No.1," he began. "He's still a young lad, by the way.
"He could play on for another 10 years. Let's back him. We should support what we have, because we know what we have is really good.
"He's been tremendous for us, there's no doubt about that. He stuck it through in the most difficult period of modern-day Manchester United history.
"It's been up and down and, basically, he's been our best player. There's no doubt about that.
"Four out of five years being our Player of the Year. That just tells its own story about his performances for the club."
United return to action on Thursday evening when they take on Aston Villa at Villa Park.
They are currently four points behind fourth placed Leicester City having played a game less.
