Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho has expressed his pride with his players after their slim Champions League win over Juventus.
He has further admitted that he has delight with his side’s 2-1 victory against the Bianconeri in the Champions League.
United went behind following a Cristiano Ronaldo strike but a Juan Mata free kick and an own goal secured victory.
Mourinho has played down cupping his ear to the Juve fans at the full-time whistle.
And that is by the vastly experienced coach saying that he “respects” the Italian Serie A giants.
The 55-year-old disclosed to BT Sport: “On a beautiful Italian day, I made a little thing.
“I know millions are happy with the win but I respect Juventus and the quality they have.
“But I can tell you that I am really proud of my boys because they did everything.
“We had to come and not feel inferior, we were in a tight situation.
“And that is the one where we thought that we needed to go to the last second of the match.
“The boys started really well and things were under control.
“Juventus have phenomenal players and that Cristiano Ronaldo goal was beautiful.
“And the player [Leonardo Bonucci] that made that beautiful pass is a central defender.
“They are a fantastic team with an amazing record at home,” he summed up.
United are second in Group H with two matches more to prosecute.
Wright tips United to exert revenge on Juve
Ex-Arsenal striker, Ian Wright has tipped Manchester United to exert revenge on Juventus in Wednesday’s Champions League meeting in Turin.
Attacker, Paulo Dybala netted the only goal of the game when the Bianconeri secured a 1-0 triumph at Old Trafford.
And that actually happened to be in the reverse tie which took place between the two sides on October 23.
The Serie A champions are, however, the strong favorites to win once again due to their brilliant run of form.
That particularly is the case with the Old Lady winning 13 of their 14 outings across all competitions this season.
Juve have also emerged as losers just twice at home since October, 2017 but that seems not to bother Wright.
He tips United, victorious in their last two Premier League games to excel “if they are up for the fight”.
“They have had their noses bloodied plenty of times already this season.
“And now, it is time for Manchester United to dish out a bruising of their own,” Wright told The Sun.
“But if they are up for the fight, make no mistake about it that they can shock Juventus on Wednesday.
“I would not say this could be the night they turn their season around, I would say it will be.
“Juventus away in the Champions League, games do not come much tougher than this.
“That is facing the team many fancy to be lifting the trophy on June 1 of next year.
“But if you can come out of it with a result or at least a performance to be proud of, good.
“Then, it really is one which can transform your entire campaign.”
