Jamie Carragher and Wayne Rooney reveal Hall of Fame shortlists

Jamie Carragher and Wayne Rooney BOTH include Sergio Aguero, Paul Scholes and John Terry in their Premier League Hall of Fame… but who do they disagree on to complete their six-man shortlists?

  • Six more players are due to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame 
  • Jamie Carragher and Wayne Rooney have both named their six-man shortlists 
  • They agreed Sergio Aguero, Paul Scholes and John Terry should make the cut 
  • However, the pair also disagreed on three of their selections for the Hall of Fame 

Jamie Carragher and Wayne Rooney both feel that Sergio Aguero, Paul Scholes and John Terry deserve to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame currently has 10 former players in it, including Rooney, and six further members are due to be added shortly.  

Speaking on Monday Night Football on Sky Sports, Carragher and Rooney agreed on three players who made their shortlists.

Wayne Rooney also aired his view on who deserved to go into the exclusive club

‘I went for Sergio Aguero, who I think has given us the best moment in the Premier League with that goal,’ Carragher said.

‘I then went with John Terry, who I’ve said for years is, in my opinion, the best centre-back in Premier League history. Paul Scholes, one of the absolute greats in midfield.’

Rooney offered no arguments with those three selections from his fellow pundit. 

‘The ones which are the same are Sergio Aguero, one of the best strikers the Premier League has ever seen. Paul Scholes, in my opinion, it should have been him and Alan Shearer, the first two. 

‘I went with John Terry also. Horrible to play against, dominant for so many years in the Premier League,’ Rooney responded.

The duo were not completely aligned with their picks, though, as Carragher selected two former Champions League winners and an ex-team-mate to go into the exclusive club.

Revealing his other choices, Carragher said: ‘Peter Schmeichel.

‘I’m going to go for Yaya Toure, who I think in that Manchester City team was absolutely unbelievable. It was men against boys at times when he was coming through.

‘The last one, I thought: “I’ve got to put God in, how can you not put God in?” Robbie Fowler.’

Rooney felt his ex-England team-mate Ashley Cole was worthy of a place in the Hall of Fame

Rooney then countered by naming his three remaining players.

‘I went for Ian Wright. Growing up, I used to hate watching him play against Everton because he’d always score. He was a character, he had a cheekiness about him.’

‘I also went for Vincent Kompany. I think I had so many battles against Kompany throughout the years. I enjoyed the challenge of playing against him.

‘The last one I went for was Ashley Cole. For big periods of his career, he was the best left-back in the world,’ Rooney added.
