Jose Mourinho ended up walking to Old Trafford as Manchester United invited ridicule by arriving late for a second successive Champions League game, despite staying in a hotel just three-quarters of a mile away.
It's not the first time this has happened to United this season; their match against Valencia had to be delayed by five minutes due to the home team's late arrival at the stadium, caused by heavy traffic.
I walked in a hoodie, in the middle of the fans, no one recognised me.

Kloss confirmed the engagement with a touching post on her Instagram , writing: "I love you more than I have words to express". People magazine reports the couple married at a small ceremony in upstate NY and will have a larger ceremony in the spring.
But Mourinho said the team "changed hotel" and were "just around the corner", at the Hilton Garden Inn in Stretford, located at Lancashire's Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground. "It took two minutes". "The players are in the bus for 45 minutes".
"What I do in two minutes walking, the players can not do in 45 minutes on the bus".
Mourinho was clearly unhappy that his squad has been hit by traffic problems once again before a big Champons League game, although Juventus were reportedly having he same problems. Mourinho says he has "informed the Uefa delegates about the situation, because we don't want to be punished again".
