After fans voted to induct the Liverpool midfield legend into the Premier League Hall of Fame, Steven Gerrard joins ‘The Home of the Greats’.
Gerrard, along with Manchester United legend David Beckham, forms the last of the inductees for the honour.
With Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry being the inaugural inductees, fans then voted in six other Hall of Famers.
So, Steven Gerrard joins ‘The Home of the Greats’, that is, the 2021 Premier League Hall of Fame class.
He has a whole page dedicated to him on their official website.
The YouTube channel of ‘This Is Anfield’ also paid a tribute to their club legend.
Liverpool express their pride over the former Reds midfielder receiving the highest individual honour that English footballers can enjoy.
Why Is Gerrard a ‘Great’?
Gerrard, a former Liverpool captain, made 504 PL appearances between 1998 and 2015, all for Liverpool across 17 years.
This makes him one of only two players to make at least 500 appearances for the club in the competition. He shares this distinction with Jamie Carragher, who’s made 508 appearances for the Reds.
Only Frank Lampard has scored more from midfield than Gerrard, who has a tally of 120 EPL goals.
The Reds’ long-serving captain also provided 92 top-flight assists across his 17 years as Liverpool midfielder.
What sets him apart as a midfielder are his leadership quality, his spectacular strikes from distance, and his driving runs.
The midfielder’s qualities are also proved by the fact that he won six Premier League Player of the Month awards.
