Manchester United's comeback win at Juventus evokes memories of Alex Ferguson era

United had faced the likely and awkward prospect of going to Valencia for their final group game next month and needing either to avoid defeat or win.

It was the eighth goal this season for the 33-year-old Ronaldo who arrived from Real Madrid in July in a deal estimated to cost 340 million euros in total over four years, on top of the 110 million-euro transfer fee.

"The Champions League is a special competition, where you could be winning, but can't relax, as anything can happen", Ronaldo said in an interview with Sky SportItalia .

But Ronaldo broke the deadlock when Bonucci curled over a pass which flew over Lindelof and straight into the path of Ronaldo who volleyed in past a helpless De Gea.

But he went jogging forward into the box for Ashley Young's free-kick a couple of minutes later and caused panic in the Juve defence.

"And it is a great joy for me because we won against a super team, and not because they are the enemy of Inter".

Ronaldo's comments, coupled with his goal celebration, has been strongly criticized by a section of United fans on social media.

Paul Pogba's return did not quite go so well against his former club and he again struggled to show his best form.

Manchester United will now switch their focus back to Premier League affairs and their crunch clash at Manchester City on Sunday.

"The thing that is a massive eye-opener for me now is I remember when he first came his talent was arguably one of the biggest talents that we've seen at United for a long time; to have him and Wayne [Rooney] in the same team was incredible when you look back". It was clear at times that his confidence is still low: after all, he entered Wednesday's game having scored just four times in 27 appearances, and his appearances this season have been sporadic at best. With Lukaku they are more inclined to play direct, whereas Sánchez is really good at dropping deeper and linking up with the midfield and wingers.

Mourinho also claimed United have "one final to play" if they want to get through. I'm not sure United have what it takes, but you never know. "We played with that spirit and we scored two goals like this".

"Then all of the attention turns to Mr Mourinho, he has his right hand to his right ear as if to say to all the Juve fans, 'What have you got to say about that?'"

I am a student of the game. "Here [in Turin], we were lucky to win in the last minute, against Chelsea we were unlucky not to win in last minute", Mourinho added.

The 33-year-old out them in front in the 65th minute, lashing home after Leonardo Bonucci's pinpoint cross.
