Manchester United icon, Roy Keane has become the fourth player to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.
The former Irish midfielder is one of the most decorated players in Premier League history, having won seven titles with United, and joins ex-team-mate Eric Cantona, Thierry Henry, and Alan Shearer in the Hall of Fame.
‘I feel very lucky to be inducted but I’ve only been inducted because of the players I’ve played with,’ Keane said in contrasting style to Cantona, whose place in the Hall of Fame was announced earlier on Tuesday.
As well as seven Premier League titles, Keane also won four FA Cups, four Community Shields, one Champions League and an Intercontinental Cup during his time at United.
Keane, who made 366 Premier League appearances, scoring 39 times and registering 33 assists, is widely regarded as one of the best central midfield players of his time.
The honour recognises players who have demonstrated an exceptional record of on-pitch success and have made important contributions in the division since its creation in 1992.
In order to be eligible for induction, players must have been retired by August 1, 2020
