Jose Mourinho had to walk from the team hotel to Old Trafford because the Manchester United team bus was held up in traffic ahead of their UEFA Champions League encounter with Juventus.
Mourinho put his hood up as he walked to Old Trafford while the bus took 45 minutes to reach the ground from a nearby Hilton Hotel.
The United team bus was also late for their last Champions League outing against Valencia and that game had to be delayed 5 minutes. That won’t be the case tonight.
However, MUFC Away Days on Twitter captured the United boss on video walking to the ground.

Mourinho then explained to BT Sport how he felt nobody recognised him en route to Old Trafford.
“I walked in a hoodie, in the middle of the fans, no one recognised me. I took two minutes.”

These are far from ideal circumstances as the team prepares for a huge night at Old Trafford. Preparations are key and Juventus will try to take advantage of this early on in the game.
Meanwhile, United will be pleased to hear Young Boys and Valencia drew 1-1 in the other Group H match-up.
But a win against Serie A champions Juve would be the icing on the cake.
