Black Stars striker Jordan Ayew has eulogized Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, saying the former striker's Premier League Hall of Fame nomination is deserved.
The newly introduced Premier League Hall of Fame honours players who have shown exceptional skill and have had a significant influence on the Premier League.
Thiery Henry and Alan Shearer are the first inductees.
Whereas Drogba, a four-time Premier League winner with Chelsea, made the nominees list, alongside 21 other legendary footballers, including David Beckham.
“I think he [David Beckham] deserves it, he’s been outstanding. All these players when I was a kid, they make you want to play football, they make you want to dream big.
“They are big examples for us, [Didier] Drogba, as well, is a big example for me as an African,” Jordan Ayew said as quoted on his club, Crystal Palace's website.
Along with the two inaugural inductees, there will be a fan vote to determine the full class of 2021.
The top six will be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.
