Referendum.. Who is the best player in the history of the English Premier League?

The British newspaper Daily Mail published the results of the referendum, which gave fans the opportunity to choose the best player in the history of the Premier League at the moment.

More than a thousand fans took part in the referendum, and most of them chose the Frenchman Thierry Henry, the legend of Arsenal.

Henry surpassed the likes of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo and Egyptian star Mohamed Salah, with the Frenchman taking 15% of the vote.

In second place was Ronaldo, the Manchester United legend and current player, ahead of Alan Shearer, the Premier League’s all-time leading scorer.

Ronaldo scored 102 goals and scored two goals in 226 Premier League matches, and from 2006 to 2009 he was the Premier League champion three times in a row with the Red Devils.

Alan Shearer, the former Newcastle and Blackburn striker, finished third, ahead of France’s Eric Canton (fourth) and England’s Steven Gerrard (fifth).

Gerrard, Aston Villa manager and former Liverpool captain, received twice as many votes as Mohamed Salah among Reds fans.

The Egyptian Salah, the Liverpool star, did not make the list of the top five stars as he finished seventh with an impressive 156 goals in 254 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s team.
Salah is among only 3 non-retired players to make the top 20 players in Premier League history, along with Ronaldo and Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who finished eighth.
