Sergio Aguero, Paul Scholes, Vincent Kompany, Didier Drogba, Ian Wright, and Peter Schmeichel have been the latest Premier League footballers to get inducted into the Hall of Fame. They have joined Wayne Rooney and Patrick Vieira to be inducted in 2022. They were chosen based on a public vote as well as the Premier League Awards Panel. The Hall of Fame recognizes the best players in the league since its inception in 2022.
“Entering the Premier League Hall of Fame makes me happy for myself and for my family. I just loved playing football here with Manchester City and the memories of winning the Premier League five times, including the most important goal of my career to win that first one,” Sergio Aguero said. “Since I was nine or 10 years old, I wanted to play in the Premier League. I think it is the best league in the world, where the football is fast and beautiful and the atmosphere is always incredible. I miss my teammates and the fans a lot still now.”
“It’s a special feeling to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame along with so many fantastic players who have already been voted in and with the players who are being named today,” Paul Scholes said. “I played for the best manager for 20 years at Manchester United; the biggest club in the world with the greatest fans. I feel lucky and privileged I was part of a team that won so many trophies and to have won the Premier League 11 times.”
“It is a real honor for me to have been inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame,” Didier Drogba said. “My years with Chelsea were so special to me, and I’m incredibly proud of everything we won as a team. I played with fantastic players for some amazing managers and against brilliant opponents. I’m so happy to say that I won the Premier League four times – and now I’m in the Hall of Fame with some of those great players I played alongside and against, which makes me very proud.”
