12 former Manchester United players nominated for Premier League Hall of Fame

Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney was inducted to the Premier League Hall of Fame earlier this week.

He joins a list of three fellow former United players – David Beckham, Eric Cantona and Roy Keane — to be named in the hall of fame.

But now 12 more former United players have been named on a 25-man shortlist to become the next additions, as per ManUtd.com, so we can expect to see that four-man list grow soon.

Peter Schmeichel and Edwin van der Sar are two of three goalkeepers on the list, alongside Chelsea and Arsenal stopper Petr Cech.

They are joined by four former United defenders, with Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand, Gary Neville and Nemanja Vidic all recognised for their brilliance in the Premier League down the years.

The others include Paul Scholes, who we think is most deserving of an inductee this time around, as well as Andy Cole, Michael Owen, Teddy Sheringham, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Robin van Persie.
