Indeed. Like, outside of the PL, Adebayo Akinfenwa is comfortably the most marketable player in the land. More than anyone in the league above him (Championship). And he’s probably more marketable than half the PL players too. As a footballer, he’s floated between League One and Two his whole career. His legend comes from being built like a wrestler.Why not? Look at some of the cnuts who get knighted! Sir Jimmy Saville?
It's all about what you think makes a "legend" at the end of the day.
In my opinion there's more to being a legend of the Premier League than just being good at football.
