Gerrard and Beckham latest players to be inducted into Premier League Hall of Fame


Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard and Manchester United great David Beckham are the latest players to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.

The former England captains and ex-international teammates have been voted in by the public and a Premier League panel to complete the 2021 list, joining Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry, Eric Cantona, Roy Keane, Dennis Bergkamp and Frank Lampard.

23 former players were put forward as nominees, with big names like Didier Drogba, Robin van Persie and Ashley Cole missing out this time around.

Gerrard spent the entirety of his English playing career at Anfield, before moving to LA Galaxy, having agonisingly missed out on the title in 2014.

Now a Scottish Premiership winner as manager of Rangers, he made 504 Premier League appearances, scoring 120 goals and providing 92 assists during 17 years playing in the competition.

He is one of only two Liverpool players to have made over 500 appearances in the competition, second only to Jamie Carragher.

Beckham won six Premier League titles during his 11 years as a senior professional with United, making 265 and scoring 62 goals – many with his iconic free-kicks. He also provided 80 assists during that time.

Now a joint owner of Inter Miami, the midfielder went on to play for Real Madrid, LA Galaxy, AC Milan and Paris-Saint Germany.

Each inductee to the Hall of Fame, which the league says represents its “highest individual honour”, will receive a personalised medallion, engraved with the year of their induction.

Giroud agrees deal to leave Chelsea

Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud, has agreed on a deal to sign for AC Milan, according to Sky Italia.

The 34-year-old’s contract at Stamford Bridge was due to expire at the end of this month.

But the Blues triggered an option to extend Giroud’s deal for another year.

However, the Champions League winners are still open to selling Giroud this summer and AC Milan are believed to be leading the race.

Giroud has now agreed a two-year contract with AC Milan worth €3.5 million (£3m) a year plus bonuses.

The two clubs are however yet to settle on a fee, but the player is hoping Chelsea will allow him to leave on a free transfer.
