Jose Mourinho trolled Juventus fans
Jose Mourinho made sure everyone was talking about him after Man United beat Juventus in the Champions League.
Cristiano Ronaldo fired Juve ahead with a stunning volley in the second half.
However Man United turned the match around with two goals in the final stages.
Juan Mata levelled with a free-kick, while a Leonardo Bonucci own goal handed United a famous win in Turin.
After the match, Mourinho taunted the home crowd.
The Man United manager stepped out onto the Allianz Stadium turf and cupped his ears towards the home supporters.

Jose Mourinho reopened his feud with the FA
Naturally, Mourinho was quizzed about his post match reactions in a series of interviews after the game.
Perhaps the most enlightening reaction Mourinho gave on his ear cupping gesture came in an interview with Scandinavian news outlet Viasport.
Mourinho defended his actions, noting the Juve fans insulted him for “94 minutes”. And then he enjoyed the following exchange with his interviewer:
Mourinho: Do you understand Italian?
Interviewer: Erm, no.
Mourinho: Ask the FA, they will translate for you! [Laughs]

The Special One’s reference was clear.
Following the match against Newcastle United in the Premier League, Mourinho was accused of of saying “fodas filhos de puta” – “f*** off sons of a bitch”.
Indeed, the FA charged Mourinho for using abusive, insulting or improper language.
However, Mourinho defied the odds and he beat the charge.
For the record, the last time the FA brought a disciplinary case which failed was back in 2013.
No wonder Mourinho is still laughing about his victory against the FA!
