The Premier League announced on Wednesday the inclusion of Frank Lampard and Dennis Nergkamp in the Hall of Fame of the competition, being the fifth and sixth to be honored with this badge after Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry, Eric Cantona and Roy Keane.
By popular vote, Chelsea’s all-time top scorer and the legendary Arsenal striker have been nominated for the Hall of Fame.
Lampard scored 177 goals in 609 Premier League games for West Ham, Chelsea and Manchester City, in addition to winning three titles while at Stamford Bridge.
The same were achieved by the Dutchman at Arsenal, including that of the 2003-04 season, by achieving it without losing a single game. Bergkamp scored 87 goals in his 315 Premier League appearances, before retiring in 2006.
