Ian Wright Names Two Players Ahead Of Arsenal Legend In Premier League Hall of Fame
Several players have graced the Premier League and worthy of induction in the Premier League Hall of Fame.
The coronavirus pandemic put a halt to the Premier League’s plans to announce its first two Hall of Fame members back in March.
With the Premier League set to resume on June 17 with two fixtures which could mean the league body will announce the Hall of Fame soon too.
Ian Wright thinks former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer and ex-Man Utd winger Ryan Giggs deserve a place in the Premier League Hall of Fame ahead of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
Speaking to Stadium Astro, Arsenal legend Wright named players he would put in a Premier League Hall of Fame: “I’d probably put in Alan Shearer and Ryan Giggs.
“I’d probably go with those two because Alan Shearer, 260 goals, will it ever be beaten? It’s going to take some unbelievable goalscorer to do it. And then you look at Ryan Giggs, 13 Premier League titles.
“Someone like Thierry will probably be next, only because of the unbelievable achievements of those two players that I’ve just mentioned.
“Alan being the greatest goalscorer in the history of the Premier League up to this date. And Ryan Giggs, that will not be beaten. You’re talking about two players who have got records there that may never be beaten.
“So when you look at Thierry Henry – who for me should be inducted next – you have to say it’s a massive accolade to Thierry Henry, look at what they have achieved to beat him.”
