On 23 February 2023, we lost one of the greatest sports commentators of all-time, not just that we also lost a great human being who put a smile on many faces including the one of Man City manager Pep Guardiola.
Pep invited Motty to the Etihad the following season in their exclusive Tunnel Club where you can enjoy a meal whilst watching the players walking out of the tunnel.
He also praised the legendary Match of the Day commentator by saying: “I know you are a legend here in Match of the Day”
John Motson talked about Kevin De Bruyne and asked Pep “What about the De Bruyne pass?”
Pep replied: “He’s a master, he’s a master!”

An emotional moment indeed, John Motson will be deeply missed.
