Mourinho warns Man Utd star Pogba: Don't get emotional against Juventus

The Portuguese faced his former side, but in Juventus colours, as the Red Devils emerged 2-1 winners on the night.

And it is a chance for Pogba to play in front of the fans who were his supporters for four seasons.

Cristiano Ronaldo says Manchester United "did nothing to win the game" after two late goals handed the English side a dramatic 2-1 Champions League victory on Wednesday.

"I came here to do my job and I was insulted for 90 minutes, " Mourinho said.

"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".

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

Juan Mata's free-kick and an Alex Sandro own goal saw United claim a surprise 2-1 win to end Juve's ideal record in Group H.

After the final whistle sounded, a typically bold Mourinho strode onto the pitch and cupped a hand around his ear, while simultaneously sneering at the crowd.

However, prior to Wednesday, Juventus hadn't lost all season. "But the others [Juventus fans] didn't forget". We will fight until the end and we'll get late goals as we have done over the last few games. They move above Valencia in Group G to second place ahead of playing Young Boys then Valencia. Should have made it 3-1.

I thought Juve were very unfortunate to lose after looking great in possession and risky around the box, but as soon as Juan Mata stepped up to take that free-kick I had a feeling it was going in.

"But we will learn from our mistakes and we are still top of the group so we are good".

Cuadrado should have made it two after he rushed forward with Ronaldo, but after a neat give and go with the No.7, he blasted over the bar from close range. "I probably shouldn´t have done it, with a cool head I wouldn´t have".

Ronaldo had given Juventus a 65th minute lead with a typically stunning strike before the visitors hit back twice in the last five minutes. They bought that player (Ronaldo), they want to win everything, they can win everything and we are a team where numerous players didn't play big matches like this in the Champions League.

Allegri raised his eyebrows and gave a smile of appreciation at the goal.

Undeterred by Ronaldo's abdominal muscles, United battled on, and got their break four minutes from time, when substitute Juan Mata curled home a sublime equalizer from a set piece just outside the area.

Minutes later, Marouane Fellaini flicked on a free kick and the ball ricocheted around near the far post before going in off Juventus defender Alex Sandro.
