José Mourinho had to retire from the Lowry Hotel for one night only because Manchester United changed his team base before his clash with Juventus.

The club has decided to stay closer to Old Trafford after UEFA had to delay the clash at United's home with Juventus after the home team arrived just 45 minutes before the start.

United was hit with a fine of £ 13,200 after the game was delayed by only five minutes. The club had to pay £ 4,400 for its late arrival and £ 8,800 for the delayed start.

Mourinho's team will ensure that United is not late for their second home game of the Champions League against Juventus staying near Old Trafford.

It was seen that the Portuguese tactician came to the Lowry at 2:45 pm, but left 30 minutes later with United coach Ricardo Formosinho.

Mourinho blamed the earlier delay on his side in the Greater Manchester police.

The Red Devils arrived late to their match at the Champions League home despite traveling only three miles from their team's hotel.

After the draw, Mourinho expressed his frustrations that the trip from Lowry lasted 75 minutes, starting at 6 pm and arriving at 7:15 pm due to a terrible congestion.

The Portuguese manager said: "We left the hotel at six o'clock in the hope that 30 minutes would be enough, which it usually is, but this time the police refused to make an escort, so we had to come alone."

But the Greater Manchester police later denied Mourinho's claim that United was denied an escort to the game.

Chief Inspector Andy Sutcliffe, GMP silver commander for the Manchester United team v Valencia, said: "All police deployments are carried out following a comprehensive risk assessment process and, specifically with respect to the accompanying team buses, they are only carried out occasionally when there is intelligence or information to suggest a risk of threat or harm to the players.

GMP has used police vehicles to accompany the coach of a team, but after a review of our surveillance responsibilities, it was decided that we would no longer provide this service at each facility.

"We consult with the relevant football clubs over a period of months to give them the proper time to plan their trips to the stadium.

"Each accessory is evaluated individually and we will continue to work with all clubs to provide an adequate police response."

UEFA also warned Manchester United's Manchester United for the delay in the start of the Champions League clash.
