The latest Manchester United news, views and rumours.
"Manchester United will always be my home, part of me," Schmeichel told Goal.com.
"Alex Ferguson is not there anymore and the club is going through difficult times but I believe bringing Louis van Gaal was a good move. The new team and new coach just need time; it is not easy to reach that level that Ferguson's United was at.
"If you can remember, it took Ferguson some time to manage things in his way too and, after that, he ruled for two decades."
"It doesn’t change what happened [the fact that Argentina beat the same nation 4-2 in a friendly after the final]," he told United’s official website.
"It was painful for us to lose the final against them. We wanted to win the cup and it eluded us but now we have to put it behind us.
"We have to move forward and think of what’s ahead. We have the Copa America in 2015, so now our focus is to be prepared for the upcoming games."
