Manchester United legend David Beckham has been inducted to the Premier League Hall of Fame, becoming the third Manchester United player to do so after Eric Cantona and Roy Keane.
The official announcement arrived just now after fellow former England internationals Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard were added to the prestigious list this morning.
Gerrard’s deserve huge respect for being the first player to enter the Premier League Hall of Fame who hasn’t lifted the title before. Imagine that.
Driven and industrious, a player who honed his ball-striking ability to see set-pieces and crosses bend majestically

We at Stretty News hope Gerrard enjoys the accolade with a nice slice of cake and cup of tea later on. All while Beckham nods in approval before glancing at his six Premier League titles.
Surprisingly, Michael Carrick hasn’t made the cut for the first round of inductees – but we’ve no doubt his time will come, especially considering he knew what it took to win Premier League titles. A language Gerrard doesn’t speak.
