Seeking a slower pace of football, he moved to Sporting Clube de Portugal, where he won the 1999–2000Portuguese Liga title in his first season with the club, putting an end to the team's 18 years without a championship.

In January 1994, Schmeichel fell out with Ferguson, as United had squandered a 3–0 lead to draw 3–3 with Liverpool. German opponents Bayern Munich had a 1–0 lead until the dying minutes of the game, when United received a corner kick. The climax of his Brøndby career would come in the European 1991 UEFA Cup competition, which saw Schmeichel as an important part of the team that reached the semi-finals. In an unforgettable celebratory moment, Schmeichel was shown cartwheeling gleefully in his area after Solskjær's winning goal. A few days later, Schmeichel made an improvised apology to the other players. Schmeichel decided to leave English football at the end of the 1999 season, as the gruelling 60 game league and cups season, which came with playing with a successful club, was threatening to undermine his high standards at the age of 36. Nevertheless, the delicate organisational situation that arose between the WWF, the Danish defence department and Hvidovre prompted Schmeichel to give up working for the WWF. Despite the fifth best defence in the league, conceding 40 goals in 30 games,[13] Schmeichel and Hvidovre finished in 14th place and were relegated in 1985.
