I thought Juve were very unfortunate to lose after looking great in possession and unsafe around the box, but as soon as Juan Mata stepped up to take that free-kick I had a feeling it was going in.
United had done well to stay in the game against a team used to winning.
"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. "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. They are now placed second in Group H with seven points, two fewer than leaders Juventus and two more than third-placed Valencia. Romelu Lukaku did not play against Bournemouth but could be available against Juventus.
"I was very pleased to score my first Champions League goal for Juventus, but we're in good shape".
The gesture sparked a small altercation with Juventus players that overshadowed one of the most important results of the season for United, which has struggled domestically but now has a great chance of reaching the knockout stage in Europe.
Bonucci floated a ball over the top of the defense and Ronaldo watched it over his shoulder before volleying into the top right corner. They had not conceded a single goal in the Champions League all season and bought Ronaldo to win the competition after twice being beaten finalists in the last four years.
The improved form of Anthony Martial has been a cause for delight amongst United fans as the Frenchman has scored five goals in his past four Premier League appearances, and his rejuvenation from sinner to saint under Mourinho has been remarkable.
Paul Pogba's return did not quite go so well against his former club and he again struggled to show his best form.
"If I was a Juve player I wouldn't have gone over to him".
It doesn't bode well ahead of a trip to Manchester City on Sunday.
United looked confident in possession in the opening exchanges but it was Juventus who had another chance shortly after as Rodrigo Bentancur's shot from outside the box was deflected behind for a corner. 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".
"I have confidence in my free-kicks at the moment". They kept Juve at arm's length in the first half and looked comfortable until Ronaldo's fantastic finish on 65 minutes. Should have made it 3-1. They are going to be big rivals as we try to retain the title so it was a tough defeat to take.
