Manchester United love to prove people wrong, claims French star

Manchester United love to prove people wrong, claims French star

"I came here to do my job, nothing more", said former Inter Milan coach Mourinho.

However, United showed great resolve as they won the encounter following a superb Juan Mata free-kick as well as a last-minute own goal by Alex Sandro.

"I think Manchester United players need to have the personality to cope with that".

'I don't know how long ago they lost a game here in the stadium so it's a good result, but also we have to recognise after the first goal we conceded too much'.

A win for the Red Devils would move them six points behind Pep Guardiola's men heading into the final global break of the season. "After their goal I think we had five minutes to wake up again but the team was there was the first minute to the last".

"They were trying to convince me to join them, but in the end it didn't happen".

"They are a fantastic team with an wonderful record at home".

The United manager said that after three consecutive wins, including an impressive victory over Juventus in midweek, Pep Guardiola knows he is in for a "difficult match".


It was the 121st goal in the competition for five-time Champions League victor Ronaldo who Juventus are counting on to help them lift their first European title since 1996. 'Hopefully, we can win.

He was Manchester City's main midfield target in the January transfer window, but after no deal materialised, Brazilian midfielder Fred ended up across town at Manchester United in the summer.

Instead they must now wait for the remaining games against Valencia and Young Boys to seal their passage to the next round.

Juventus sits atop Group H, two points ahead of United.

It didn't take a lot to convince Ashley Young.

"If we draw the gap is still nine points, if we lose it's 12, so I don't think that is the way to look at the match".

"I was happy with the goal, but I'm a little bit disappointed because we should win the game with three or four goals".

"And even if the good results were not in our pockets the performances were there, the positive attitude was there so we are going to try but Manchester City are a very powerful team".
