Jose Mourinho’s Reaction on Full Time
Mourinho responds to the historic victory in a classic way. The United boss taunted the Juventus fans at the full-time whistle. He cupped his ear and made a hilarious face towards the home crowd, who abused him throughout the game.
While speaking to BT Sport at the full time, Mourinho said:
“They [Juventus fans] insulted me for 90 minutes and then I didn’t insult them. I respect Juventus, I respect their manager, their players, the quality they have.”
“The game was a very good game. It was top. We performed at a high level. We had about five minutes after that goal to wake up again but the team was there until the last.
“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. I am really proud of my boys because they did everything.
“A couple of our boys said in the interview at home that they were a little bit… We had to come and not feel inferior. We were in a situation where we thought we needed to go to the last second of the match. The boys started really well and things were under control.”
Juan Mata: “A nice last five minutes”
While speaking to the media, Juan Mata said:
“What a nice last five minutes. It is a very good night for us to get three points against Juventus in Italy. It is amazing!
“They have fantastic players and are a top team. We come back to Manchester with three points and that is football!
“The first half was not bad. It was quite even. They had chances but in the second half, it was a fantastic goal from Cristiano Ronaldo. They had a few clear chances after that to win the game but they didn’t and we came back. It is a very big step in the group.”
