Champions League: Mourinho names player that helped Manchester United in 2-1 win over Juventus

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho has singled out midfielder, Marouane Fellaini for praise following his side’s 2-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League fixture played on Wednesday night at the Allianz Stadium.

Juan Mata’s free-kick and an own goal from defender, Alex Sandro helped Mourinho’s side secure three points in Turin as forward, Cristiano Ronaldo’s lone goal was not enough to get a draw for the hosts.

Mourinho said Fellaini was the game changer in the Red Devil’s 2-1 victory against their hosts.

“We managed to win because we played a very, very positive match and we looked for the victory to the very end. We looked for it,’ Metro UK quoted Mourinho as saying at post-match.

“Fellaini changes the game, most often at home. We didn’t have him in the first leg, Juventus introduced [Andrea] Barzagli to control us, but we immediately went direct and got the goals.”

Mourinho’s men will now tackle Manchester City in their next fixture on Sunday in the Premier League.
