Manchester United fans lash out at Cristiano Ronaldo for ‘disrespectful’ goal celebration

  • Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho face off in the Manchester derby

Not for nothing were the 2,000 travelling fans singing "Oh what a night" among other songs ahead of Sunday's Manchester derby, the third hard away game in eight days, the first two of those 2-1 victories.

"When you play against a player like that you have to respect his qualities but at the same time you have to play your game and you can't show fear to that type of player".

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning first Champions League goal for Juventus but former club Manchester United fought back for a 2-1 win in Turin.

"What he proved in Turin was that he can still give his team the tactics to make them competitive against superior opponents", he told the Daily Mail.

"So I tried to do what I do in training a lot of times, practicing, practicing".

Mourinho is unpopular among Juventus fans after managing bitter rival Inter Milan for three years.

Mourinho's team needed two goals in the last four minutes but are now in a fantastic position to qualify from Group H and make it into the knockout rounds.

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.


Wednesday was the third time in their past six matches that United have come from a goal down to win.

United have started playing better under Jose Mourinho lately, winning three of their last four games and picking up 10 points. "But the others [Juventus fans] didn't forget".

"What really annoys me is losing a match we deserved to win, but at this stage it doesn´t matter that much, we still have nine points".

United have developed a nasty habit of starting games slowly - they were a goal down inside 20 minutes when Juventus won at Old Trafford - but that wasn't the case here. Valencia, which earlier beat Young Boys 3-1, is two points further back. United struggled to get any scoring chances.

"But we will learn from our mistakes and we are still top of the group so we are good". "It's OK to lose against United, but seeing how the match went it leaves us with a bit of a bitter taste". "I didn't insult them".

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.

The Portuguese superstar immediately ran to the corner flag, lifted up his shirt and pointed at his impressive stomach muscles.
