José Mourinho is not having the best of times when it comes to taking the Manchester United team bus.

Considering the Red Devils had issues with getting to their Champions League clash with Valencia earlier this month, the Special One would probably want to avoid that in their big match against Juventus.

However, the United boss found the team caught in traffic on the way to Old Trafford (again!), decided to hop off the bus and walk the rest of the distance to the stadium.

Before he left the bus, though, he spoke to the rest of the players and explained why he had made that decision.

"We changed hotels to just across the road, but the boys are in the bus for 45 minutes," he told BT Sport.

"I walked to the ground in a hoodie through the fans and nobody recognised me. It took me two minutes to walk, what it took the team 45 minutes in a bus.


"But Juventus is having the same kind of problem. I have informed the UEFA delegate about the situation because he don't want to be punished again."

Paulo Dybala's first-half strike has Juventus leading United 1-0 at the moment.

It has been an eventful night at the Theatre of Dreams so far, especially when an eager pitch invader wanted to meet Cristiano Ronaldo during the match.

How far will United progress in the Champions League?

Let us know in the comments.
