Sergio Aguero, Paul Scholes, Vincent Kompany, Didier Drogba, Ian Wright and Peter Schmeichel have been inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.
They join Wayne Rooney and Patrick Vieira as the latest players to become part of the Premier League’s Hall of Fame, taking the total up to 16.
The decision to select these players was based on a public online vote and the Premier League Awards Panel, with the Hall of Fame recognising the best players to have graced the league since its inception in 1992.
The Premier League Hall of Fame launched in 2021, with Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer the inaugural inductees. David Beckham, Dennis Bergkamp, Eric Cantona, Steven Gerrard, Roy Keane, and Frank Lampard soon followed to complete the ‘Class of 2021’.
Sergio Aguero left Manchester City in 2021 as the highest scoring overseas player in Premier League history, with 184 goals in just 275 appearances over a 10-year period in which he won five league titles.
The 33-year-old former Argentina international, who retired from professional football due to a heart condition earlier this season, is also City’s all-time leading scorer on 260 goals in 390 appearances.
But Aguero will be best remembered for his dramatic stoppage-time winner against QPR at the Etihad on the final day of the 2011/12 season which clinched City their first Premier League title.
