Sorry but I must respectfully disagree. 

A layer THREE (3) etherchannel requires the admin to configure a
port-channel interface, but a layer 2 etherchannel is not created that
way. See the excerpt below.

Configuring Layer 2 EtherChannels

You configure Layer 2 EtherChannels by configuring the Ethernet
interfaces with the channel-group interface configuration command, which
creates the port-channel logical interface. You cannot put a Layer 2
interface into a manually created port-channel interface.

Hello Peng,
Yes you need to create a port-channel interface to configure an
etherchannel. Here is documentation for reference.
