Manchester United have been charged by Uefa over their late arrival for Tuesday’s Champions League draw with Valencia, which delayed kick-off by five minutes.
The team coach was delayed in traffic on its way to Old Trafford from the Lowry Hotel in Manchester city centre.
United manager Jose Mourinho said they were refused a police escort.
But Greater Manchester Police said it has stopped providing escorts unless there is a risk to players.
It added that clubs had been consulted “over a period of months” to allow “adequate time to plan ahead for their journeys to the stadium”.
United drew the game 0-0 and their Spanish opponents have also been charged for the late kick-off, as well as setting off of fireworks and a kit infringement.
