Manchester United team bus late AGAIN for Champions League clash with Valencia

Scholes was working as a pundit for United's Champions League clash at home to Valencia tonight.

Manchester United are a club with proud traditions.

United were previously late in the final match at Upton Park in May 2016 where they went down 3-2 to West Ham, with their team bus attacked leading to a 45-minute delay in the kick-off.

The harsh reality is that Mourinho's team is playing poorly and failing to win matches, which is a unsafe combination for any manager.

United are up against Juventus in their next two Champions League games, as they will host the Italian giants on October 23 before the reverse fixture in Turin on Nov 7.

Romelu Lukaku forced a pair of good saves from Neto and the visiting keeper also palmed over a Paul Pogba free kick at the other end as United finally showed some goal up front midway through the second half.


And, after calling the club a mess following the defeat, former United midfielder Scholes has admitted he is surprised Mourinho is still manager at Old Trafford.

"But the effort was something that I demand and when you don't have special qualities you cannot ask for special things but commitment, effort, you can demand and the players they answered well". "Uefa were nice, the referee was nice to allow us to start the game five minutes later because we at least needed half hour to be prepared but it was not a problem with the club organisation".

That said, there we some positives on the pitch in a dismal game, with both Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford showing that they now deserve to be trusted by Mourinho.

"But this time the police refused to do an escort, so we come by ourselves and we took from the Lowry hotel 75 minutes". He seemed to be protecting Mourinho, or more likely kissing up to the boss that once left him out in the cold.

"I don't need to know what he said", Mourinho said of Scholes.
