Former Manchester United manager Sir. Alex Ferguson and former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger have become the first managers to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.
The duo enjoyed a legendary rivalry during the 1990s and 2000s, with Ferguson winning 13 Premier League titles as manager of Manchester United, and Wenger lifting the trophy three times while in charge of Arsenal.
Wenger’s 22 years in charge of the Gunners remain a Premier League record, and the Frenchman’s 2003/04 Invincibles team remains the only one to have gone a whole season unbeaten in the league’s history.
