Jose Mourinho arrives at Man Utd hotel a stone’s throw from Old Trafford after threatening to walk to Young Boys clash

JOSE MOURINHO has arrived at Manchester United’s new hotel just a stone’s throw away from Old Trafford, after threatening to walk to tonight’s Young Boys clash.

The Special One, 55, has spent the season moaning about traffic woes and lack of police escorts for Champions League games.

The club have even been fined for arriving to their ground so late for a game.

Now, Mourinho has hauled his squad out of the Lowry Hotel and into the Hilton Garden Inn at the Old Trafford cricket ground – just 1km away.

The United chief has once again threatened to walk to avoid any more traffic drama – saying it would take two minutes to stroll there or 45 minutes stuck on the roads.

Last night Mourinho announced: “We decide to change hotel. We are not coming from the city centre.

“We are staying at a hotel a few metres away. Information is things much better than last time. If it is not better I walk.”

Mourinho is anxious to escape the travel trauma of United’s two previous home Champions league ties this season.

Uefa fined United £13,203 after they arrived for the game against Valencia on October 2 just 43 minutes before kick-off from the Lowry Hotel.

Mourinho and United blamed a lack of police escort for the late arrival, but police chiefs claim United knew exactly what the situation was.

The Premier League club then switched to the Hilton for October 23’s game with Juventus – but AGAIN hit traffic drama, with Mourinho walking to the ground.

That evening, Mourinho revealed: “Yes, we change hotel which is just around the corner, the players are in bus for 45 minutes.

“I walked with a hoodie in the middle of the fans and nobody recognised me. I took two minutes.

“And what I did in two minutes walking the players cannot do in 45 minutes on the bus.
