Manchester United fans were absolute overjoyed with Jose Mourinho after his tactical tweaks and substitutions helped his side win the clash against Juventus.
The Italian giant was in typical fashion a tough opponent, particularly away from home yet the Portuguese and his players ran out with all three points.
Juventus are favourites to win the Champions League and having made light work of United at Old Trafford, many expected a battering.
Instead Mourinho’s men showed real character in the first half and took it a step further by responding brilliantly to conceding in the second half.
JOSE MOURINHO. MY MANAGER.

Once again, you have to give credit to Jose Mourinho for his brilliant subs. Time and time again this season his subs have changed the game at crucial times of the match. Mata with a brilliant free kick and Fellaini’s flick on caused havoc for the second goal.

Manchester United’s best result in Europe for years. Certainly José Mourinho’s best ever at the club. The comeback kings strike again.
Manchester City up next.

Best United performance under Mourinho by a million miles. An utter triumph. The character shown, it total adversity in terms of Mourinho’s job prospects, in recent weeks has been incredible. Turin brings the best out of United.

Jose’s players did need a hint of luck to win the match but it was all down to their own solid efforts throughout the 90 minutes.
Fans had complained that Manchester United seemed to turn up in only the second half of matches but this was definitely their most complete performance of the season.
