Fugerson and Wenger: The First two Legends to be listen in Premier League Hall of Fame
Sir Alex Ferguson
With a record 13 championships under his belt, Sir Alex is the most successful manager in Premier League history. On two different instances, he also won the championship for an unparalleled three seasons in a row.
His Man Utd team won the first Premier League title in 1992/93 to provide the Red Devils’ first league triumph since 1967 and usher in a historic period of success over an astonishing 27-year tenure at Old Trafford that included 21 Premier League seasons.
Sir Alex was well known for motivating others and setting impossibly high standards in a methodical quest for achievement.
He won his final Premier League championship in 2012–13 while still playing with the Red Devils.
Sir Alex now holds the all-time Premier League record with 528 victories from 810 games and 1,752 total points.
He received the honor for Manager of the Season 11 times and Manager of the Month 27 times.
“Being elected into the Premier League Hall of Fame makes me really happy. When you get this kind of acknowledgment, it’s an honor “added Sir Alex.
So it’s not just about me personally. I’m also proud of the team, the staff, and my players because it’s about the job I have at Manchester United and the relationship we have had for many years.
“I think Arsene is a highly deserving inductee because of the great way he changed Arsenal Football Club. They became into a challenging squad to compete against, and we both had a competitive drive to succeed.
“We’d have supper together in a little Swiss restaurant that Dad knew well throughout the years since retiring. He’s a great intriguing guy, and I like being with him, but I still have to choose the wine!”
Arsene Wenger’s 22 seasons as Arsenal’s manager set records for the Premier League.
In 2003–04, when “The Invincibles” became the first side to win the league while going undefeated the whole season, he won the Premier League three times.
Wenger had a great and immediate effect upon entering the Premier League as one of the first foreign managers in 1996.
By his innovative football philosophy and dedication to playing exciting, attacking football, he upped standards and won the title in 1997–98, his first full season with the team.
In particular, Wenger led a clever transfer plan that resulted in the recruitment of fellow Hall of Fame members Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira. This approach included scouting for potential overseas.
He oversaw a record 828 Premier League games, winning 476 and drawing 199. In 1998, 2002, and 2004, Wenger won the award for Manager of the Season.
Wenger expressed his appreciation for being in the list of the Premier League Hall of Fame. “We’ve always sought to provide the fans something extraordinary, and when you have players who are capable of amazing feats, the responsibility to excellence is what I consider to be most crucial.
“I want to be remembered as someone who loved Arsenal, respected the club’s principles, and left it in a situation where it can develop and expand.
“It is a huge honor for me to discuss this with Sir Alex. It’s like to two boxers going the distance together; you battle ferociously. You are respected, and visiting him would be a great opportunity to reminisce about old fights over a nice bottle of wine.
