Manchester United punished by UEFA over Valencia game

Manchester United have been fined €15,000 for the late arrival and subsequent behind-schedule kick-off of their Champions League game with Valencia.

United were affected by heavy traffic congestion in Manchester, ahead of the match on October 2, which finished 0-0.

The club confirmed 25 minutes prior to the initial kick-off time of 20:00 BST, that the match had been delayed until 20:05 BST, due to the late arrival of their bus.

UEFA has fined them €5,000 for the late arrival of the team, and €10,000 for a delayed start to the match, while Valencia will pay €1,000 for the setting off of fireworks.

Also, Napoli must pay €34,000 for setting off of fireworks against Liverpool.
