Pele admitted that of all teams of the world, he likes to watch Manchester United the most. The English champions, according to the greatest ever player, are the most enjoyable team to watch.

“I have always liked English teams,”

“In the 1970s ad 80s I was a Liverpool fan. I don’t know why especially, perhaps because they were the top team back then.”

“In the last 10 or 15 years I have enjoyed following Manchester United the most.”

‘They play the game the right way and, in Brazil, Manchester United are far and away the most popular team.”

“The Premier League is the most exciting league to watch in the world, there’s no doubt about that at all.”


Shame about once supporting the dippers and of course he’s got a history of bold predictions gone disastrously wrong – but he’s got this one spot on, even though last season we were rarely that enjoyable… But overall he’s right: United play some of the most attractive football on the planet. Long may it continue.
