Paulo Dybala insists he didn't insult Jose Mourinho

Paulo Dybala insists he didn't insult Jose Mourinho

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci angrily approached Mourinho as he cupped his ear at the Bianconeri fans and the United coach was escorted off the pitch by a UEFA official and some members of his staff.

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. "And especially there is always a lot of negative comments about us but hopefully they might say something positive for once, because I think we deserve it, the team deserve it, the manager deserves it for getting this incredible result". What I don't like is that they focus on his reaction and not the insults.

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

The gesture sparked an altercation with Juventus players but it couldn't overshadow the enormity of the result for United, which has struggled domestically but now has a great chance of reaching the knockout stage in Europe.

And Mourinho said United are not focusing on the yawning gap between the two clubs in the build-up to Sunday's game. "The game was really top and I think we perform at a high level".

Sanchez has started the last few Manchester United games as part of a three-pronged attack and earned praise for his performance against Juventus on Thursday night.

Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala both hit 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.

"Sixy" City were sensational against Shakhtar, and if they play again as they have been doing then their first derby win in four at home is more than likely.

Instead they must now wait for the remaining games against Valencia and Young Boys to seal their passage to the next round. "We are both good guys, more than you expect, it's much better, believe me". We had an awesome escort here today - thank you to the Italian police.
