Europe’s football’s governing body, Uefa, have fined Manchester United a total of 15,000 euros (£13,200) for the late kick-off to their Champions League match against Valencia earlier in October.

The late kick-off, it is understood, was caused by the hosts being caught in traffic.

The body’s disciplinary arm fined the Premier Leagues side 5,000 euros for the late arrival of their bus.

United were also fined 10,000 euros for the late kick-off, while the club’s manager Jose Mourinho was also warned over the delay.

United arrived at Old Trafford less than 45 minutes before kick-off on October 2 and had to ask Slovenian referee Slavko Vincic to delay the start of the game by five minutes.

Mourinho blamed the delay on local police for not providing an escort for United’s team bus.

However, police officials said the club knew well ahead of time no such service would be provided and had time to make the adequate arrangements.
