Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
The English Premier League (EPL) secretariat said on the official website on the 29th (Korean time), “Legendary Ferguson, former Manchester United coach and Wenger, former Arsenal coach, have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. The two of them created an amazing legacy.”
Ferguson managed Manchester United from 1986 to 2013. He led a total of 810 games and won 528 victories. Under Ferguson, United won 13 league titles. Ferguson won the Manager of the Year award 11 times and the Manager of the Month award 27 times.
“I’m really happy to be inducted into the Hall of Fame,” Ferguson said. It is an honor to be recognized. But it’s not my own business. It’s the result of a bond I’ve had over the years at Manchester United. I am proud of the club, staff and players. My job was to send the fans home happy. Manchester United’s history moved me.” 스포츠토토
The achievements of Wenger, Ferguson’s rival, were also honored with the award. Wenger joined Arsenal in 1996 and managed for 22 seasons. Wenger recorded 476 victories in 828 matches. In particular, in the 2003-04 season, the famous ‘undefeated championship’ was created and rewritten the history of the Premier League.
Wenger said: “Thank you very much. He always wanted to give his fans something special and he had amazing players. He wants to be remembered as a person who loves Arsenal, respects the values of the club and has made it grow. It is an honor to share this moment with Ferguson. We play fiercely against each other, but there is respect in it.”
