Commentary legend John Motson: Manchester City are the best side in English football history

Manchester United’s treble-winning team? Arsenal’s Invincibles? Liverpool or Leeds’ famous teams? How about Chelsea’s upstarts under Jose Mourinho? Who have been the greatest team in English football history?

According to legendary commentator John Motson we’re seeing the crème de la crème right before our very eyes, with ‘Motty’ declaring Pep Guardiola’s current Manchester City side to be the best he has seen in his long and storied career.

Motson, 72, is about to end a 48-year career in football broadcasting during which he has covered an incredible ten World Cups and countless other matches. He is a man who has seen it all and his words about City carry significant weight.

“Manchester City at the moment in the English game have far out-reached anybody I’ve seen before,” Motson told talkSPORT at Day Three of the Cheltenham Festival.

“I just think Manchester City have taken us onto a new planet.”

Most agree that this City side, dubbed the ‘Shark Team’, are with ease the best on English soil and among the very best in Europe – but are they truly the finest side English football has seen?
