Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho described Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Juventus as “a great joy”, though insisted that had nothing to do with the Old Lady being the “enemy” of his former side Inter.

Juve appeared to be sailing through as Group H winners after former United star Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning volley 25 minutes from time.

Juan Mata equalised with a fine free-kick late on and then an Alex Sandro own goal gave the visitors all three points in Turin. 

“When I work for a club like Manchester United I need to forget my past, as in those 90 minutes I represent Manchester United,” Mourinho said.

“But the others [Juventus fans] didn’t forget, and it is a great joy for me because we won against a super team, and not because they are the enemy of Inter.”
