Former Manchester United star David Beckham has become one of the few ex-Premier League players to have been inducted into the hall of fame. The former England international midfielder has earned his spot on the list of the legends that have made it into the books of the recognized legends of the game and he has had a couple of things to say about his inclusion.
The former Paris Saint-Germain star was signed by former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson as a youngster and he would then go on to establish himself as one of the best players under the ex-manager. Beckham is a true legend of football not only for Manchester United or the English Premier League and had a great career playing for AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, and Real Madrid as well.
He joins the likes of Steven Gerrard, Alan Shearer, Eric Cantona, Thierry Henry, Roy Keane, and more ex-players are expected to still join the list in the coming weeks. Beckham had himself a great career at United after being signed to United and would then make it to the England national team for which he played at three different World Cup tournaments. His inclusion comes as no surprise as he was voted in by fans to whom he has now shown appreciation and thanks.
Speaking after the announcement, Beckham said he would like to thank all of the fans and everyone else who voted for him to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame and stated that it would not have been possible without them.
He played for Manchester United in 264 Premier League games and scored 62 goals while registering 70 assists in the process. He is widely recognized as one of the legends in the Premier League history and his inclusion into the Hall of Fame is a well-deserved one.
