Real Madrid stars were stranded outside Manchester airport for more than half an hour on Tuesday as their mission to reach another Champions League final hit an unexpected snag.
After landing in north-west England ahead of Wednesday night’s semi-final second leg against Manchester City – Real’s traveling squad were left baffled when their bus failed to arrive on time.
Coach Carlo Ancelotti was far from calm, as his players were sidelined for around 40 minutes.
Karim Benzema at least saw the funny side of the delay, but Luka Modric appeared to share his manager’s frustrations.
Maybe it could be a game on the part of City, so at least the media in Spain report, but it could also have been a technical error.
According to AS, an explanation will be requested for this case, because the players would have to be close to the hotel at that time.
