The Premier League introduced its Hall of Fame on 19th April 2021 and on 26th April 2021, it inducted its first players. Arsenal’s Thierry Henry and Newcastle United’s Alan Shearer were the first inductees of the Premier League Hall Of Fame.

Peter Schmeichel

“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.”

Paul Scholes

“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.”

Ian Wright

“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 team-mates and now to receive this accolade, is a true honour. I feel really humbled.”

Didier Drogba

“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.”

Vincent Kompany

“I feel that I found a home at Manchester City and in the Premier League. I came to love the club and I think the biggest achievement of my career was to be a part of such an incredible journey, where we progressed from a side without high expectations to become a dominant force and champions four times.”

Sergio Aguero

“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. I miss my team-mates and the fans a lot still now.”
