Ronaldo bemoans Juve's Champions League 'present' to Manchester United

Mourinho: They abused me for 90 minutes, I just wanted to hear them a little more

United's win over Juventus comes as a big boost ahead of the weekend's Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium.

"A point or three would've changed little for Juventus, but three points makes a big difference to us".

Jose Mourinho lauded his players after securing after a stunning comeback victory that the Manchester United manager milked in front of the Juventus fans.

"In attractive Italian they insulted me for 90 minutes", he told BT Sport.

"So I tried to do what I do in training a lot of times, practicing, practicing". I respect Juventus, I respect their players, their manager - I respect everything.

It was the eighth goal this season for the 33-year-old Ronaldo who arrived from Real Madrid in July in a deal estimated to cost 340 million euros in total over four years, on top of the 110 million-euro transfer fee.

And that has revived memories of the winning goals scored in "Fergie Time" by Manchester United's trophy-winning teams under Alex Ferguson.

With Fellaini and Pogba lurking nearby, the ball eventually being bundled over the line by Juventus midfielder Alex Sandro on 89 minutes, and United hung on through almost 5 minutes of stoppage time for the win.

Even as Mourinho was goading the home fans, Leonardo Bonucci and Paulo Dybala ran towards Mourinho and questioned the Portuguese tactician over his seemingly provocative gesture.

However, prior to Wednesday, Juventus hadn't lost all season.

"We played a fantastic game, to our top level, as we can not be any better than this", said Mourinho. "But the others [Juventus fans] didn't forget".

'I have confidence in free kicks at the moment, ' he told BT Sport.

"We played a fantastic game, to our top level, as we can not be any better than this".

Cuadrado should have made it two after he rushed forward with Ronaldo, but after a neat give and go with the No.7, he blasted over the bar from close range. "I probably shouldn't have done it, and with a cool head I wouldn't have done it, but with my family insulted, including my Inter family, I reacted like this", Mourinho said.

Juventus had proved wasteful with Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala both hitting the woodwork before five-time Ballon d´Or victor Ronaldo brought the capacity 41,470 crowd to their feet when he hammered home Bonucci´s long pass from just inside United´s half. They had not conceded a single goal in the Champions League all season and bought Ronaldo to win the competition after twice being beaten finalists in the last four years.

Allegri raised his eyebrows and gave a smile of appreciation at the goal.
