Two players representing the history of the English Premier League (EPL) have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
The Premier League Secretariat announced on its official website on the 29th (Korean time) that former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson (81, England) and Arsene Wenger (73, France) former Arsenal manager were selected as the first managers to be inducted into the League Hall of Fame. Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said: “The two coaches have brought unprecedented levels of success to their respective clubs and have enthused fans with their rivalry, with a total of 16 league titles shared (13 for Ferguson and 3 for Wenger).” .
Ferguson was the ruler. He led Man United for 27 years from 1986 to 2013, winning 528 wins (65% win rate) in 810 Premier League matches, winning 1752 points. He was the only English club to achieve the ‘Treble’ (three crowns, 1998-1999), and was selected as the ‘Manager of the Year’ 11 times. Ferguson said, “My job was to make fans happy on their way home. The history of the Manchester United club and my own expectations were my driving force.”
Wenger, a perpetual challenger of the ‘Ferguson Era’, was an innovator. He was a foreign leader from France who tried to improve his constitution in English football and devoted 22 years to Arsenal from 1996 to 2018. In the 2003-2004 season, he achieved the only ‘undefeated championship’ in the history of English professional football.먹튀검증 “I always wanted to give the fans something special,” said Wenger. “I want to remain as someone who loves Arsenal and respects its values.”
