Manchester United head coach, Jose Mourinho, has stated that he should not have made mocking gesture towards Juventus fans who had insulted him during the Champions League match.
Juan Mata’s free-kick and an own goal from defender, Alex Sandro helped United secure three points in Turin as Cristiano Ronaldo’s lone goal was not enough to get a point for the hosts.
Mourinho after the final whistle, had entered the field cupping his ear before he was confronted by Leonardo Bonucci and intervention of Ashley Young helped diffuse the situation.
“I was insulted for 90 minutes. I came here to do my job, nothing more,” Mourinho told Sky Sport Italia.
“I didn’t offend anyone at the end, I just made a gesture that I wanted to hear them louder.
“I probably shouldn’t have done it, and with a cool head I wouldn’t have done it, but with my family insulted, including my Inter family, I reacted like this.”
