Man United vs Barcelona: Traffic team in Manchester leave hilarious message ahead of Champions League tie
The traffic in Manchester is notoriously bad ahead of an evening game at Old Trafford.
In fact, it’s even led to the Manchester United players arriving late for some Champions League matches this season even though they were staying at a hotel just half a mile away from the ground.
It prompted former manager Jose Mourinho to even tell the world’s media that he once stepped off the coach and walked to the ground in disguise as it was quicker!
And on Wednesday, United welcome Barcelona to Old Trafford for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie which promises to be a wonderful spectacle.
But if you’re in Manchester at the time of the match, but not going to Old Trafford, there will only be one thing on your mind – more horrendous traffic around the city!

In preparation for the game and undoubtedly the huge jams around the city, Manchester’s traffic team left a message advising people travelling around the city to consider using public transport with a hilarious twist!
The message read: “MUFC v BARCA, Old Trafford, Wed 10 Apr 20:00.
“Pique time will be Messi. Consider using tram or bus.”
In case you didn’t get the joke already, this is in reference to Barcelona duo Gerard Pique (whose name sounds kind of similar to ‘peak’) and Lionel Messi, whose name obviously sounds like the word ‘messy’!
Below you can see the hilarious message from Manchester’s traffic team.
