Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel is charging fans £4,500 to have a two course dinner with him

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel is charging fans £4,500 to have a two course dinner with him

Would you pay that kind of money to dine with a footballer?

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel is charging fans £4,500 to have a two course dinner with him. 

The eye watering fee is for a table of up to ten guests to dine with the former Denmark goalkeeper in a private hotel dining room before the main event, an Evening with Peter Schmeichel

Apart from the dinner, fans will also receive a signed football shirt, a photo with the man himself and seats at the main event. 

The event is to be held in January at the Leonardo Royal Tower Bridge in London and it is currently being advertised on multiple social media platforms including Facebook and Instagram. 

If you are not wanting to pay £4,500 for the private dinner, the general admission cost for the main event is £40, whilst a ticket plus a photo is priced at £85. 


Some United fans have reacted to this news.

One said: “Hasn’t he got enough cash already?”

Whilst another replied: “If you don’t like it, you don’t go.”

During his playing career at United, Schmeichel made a total of 398 appearances. In his time at Old Trafford, he got his hands on five Premier League titles, four FA Charity Shields, three FA Cups, one League Cup and one Champions League title. 

Since retiring, Schmeichel has been involved in many punditry roles. 

Earlier on in the month, he spoke about his former team’s chances of getting back into the top four. 

Schmeichel told The Times: “Manchester United? Pre-season has been promising but the reality is that a long process of transition is required.

“The club have backed Erik ten Hag in recruiting players he knows and wanted to work worth, and his first season will be fascinating.” 


His words are proving to be correct as United have had an awful start to their 22/23 season. The future of Cristiano Ronaldo dominated the build up to the campaign, but the performances on the pitch have so far been abysmal. 

Erik ten Hag’s side lost their first game at home against Brighton with an underwhelming performance. A week later against Brentford, they were even worse as they were comfortably beaten 4-0 by the Bees at the Gtech Community Stadium. 


United will now have to put the disappointment behind them as they prepare for a huge clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford next Monday. 

The Red Devils are currently bottom of the Premier League on zero points and a goal difference of minus five. However, a win over Jurgen Klopp’s Reds will sit them leapfrog their rivals.
