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.
“I feel that I found a home at Manchester City and in the Premier League, so I am delighted to be joining the Hall of Fame,” Vincent Kompany said. “I came to love the club and I think the biggest achievement of my career was to be part of such an incredible journey, where we progressed from a side without high expectations to become a dominant force and champions four times.”
“It’s a real privilege to be inducted into the Hall of Fame,” Ian Wright said. “You have to remember that for the majority of my football journey I never thought I’d become a professional footballer. So to do that, enjoy the times I had with the fans and my teammates, and now to receive this accolade, is a true honor. I feel really humbled.”
“I am very honored to be inducted into the Hall of Fame,” Peter Schmeichel said. “I understood straight away that your career is only for a very short period of time. You have to make the best of that opportunity and make sure you’re someone who is remembered because you did something. When I was a kid in Denmark I used to fall asleep to this dream of playing for Manchester United. The team I was part of was so good that winning the Premier League once was special, but we felt we had to retain it to prove ourselves, and it was a dream come true for me to win five titles.”
