Manchester - Manchester
United's arrival at Old Trafford was held up by severe traffic for the
second consecutive Champions League game, forcing manager Jose Mourinho
to arrive at the stadium on foot.
United were fined a total of €15 000 by UEFA and
Mourinho handed a warning by European football's governing body for
arriving late to a 0-0 draw against Valencia earlier this month, causing
a five-minute delay to the kick-off.
Mourinho blamed the lack of a police escort on that occasion, but
despite changing the team hotel to move closer to Old Trafford, United
were still caught out.
"We changed hotel. The players are in the bus for 45 minutes," Mourinho told BT Sport.
"I walked with a hoodie in the middle of the fans, no one recognised me.
"Juve are having the same kind of problem. I informed the UEFA delegate about the problem."
Juventus arrived at the stadium around 15 minutes ahead of United just before 20:00 SA time.
The match still kicked off as scheduled at 21:00.
Juventus went on to win 1-0 thanks to a first half goal by Argentina's Paulo Dybala.
