Jose Mourinho admits that he is "really proud" of his Manchester United players after their 2-1 comeback win at Juventus in the Champions League.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that he was delighted with his side's 2-1 victory over Juventus in the Champions League.

United went behind courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo strike, but a Juan Mata free kick and an own goal from Alex Sandro gave the visitors all three points.

Mourinho has played down cupping his ear to the Juventus supporters at the full-time whistle - saying that he "respects" the Italian giants - but the Portuguese acknowledged that he had been left "really proud" of his players.

The 55-year-old told BT Sport: "On a beautiful Italian day, I made a little thing. I know millions are happy with the win, but I respect Juventus and the quality they have. I am really proud of my boys because they did everything.

"We had to come and not feel inferior. We were in a situation where we thought we needed to go to the last second of the match. The boys started really well and things were under control.

"Juventus have phenomenal players. That Cristiano Ronaldo goal was beautiful and the player (Leonardo Bonucci) that made that beautiful pass, is a central defender! They are a fantastic team with an amazing record at home."

United sit in second place in Group H with two games to play.
