Mourinho Celebration Sparks Anger As Manchester United Beat Juventus In Italy
Jose Mourinho sparked outrage among Juventus home fans after he celebrated Manchester United’s remarkable Champions League comeback win in Turin.
A 90th-minute own goal by Leonardo Bonucci gave Manchester United a dramatic 2-1 victory over Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday as Mourinho’s side overcame a brilliant volley by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo struck with a magnificent first-time shot on 65 minutes to seemingly leave Juve on course for the last 16, but Juan Mata equalised with an 86th-minute free-kick before Bonucci turned into his own net.

The Italian champions dominated much of the game at the Allianz Stadium and twice hit the woodwork, with Sami Khedira smacking the post and Paulo Dybala clipping the crossbar.
Ronaldo’s superb finish from a deep Bonucci pass looked to have Juve heading for a fourth win in as many games in Group H, but United staged a stunning comeback to move to within two points of Massimiliano Allegri’s team.

The united manager had been the subject of mockery from Juventus fans in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford, with the Portuguese still an unpopular figure after leading Inter Milan to the treble during his time in Italy.
At full time Mourinho walked onto the pitch and cupped his ear to the stands, prompting Juventus captain Leonardo Bonucci to confront the United boss.
