MI­LAN - Paulo Dy­bala has re­vealed what he said to Jose Mour­inho after the Manch­ester United man­ager taunted Ju­ven­tus fans on Wed­nes­day night.

United com­pleted a dra­matic come­back to s t un J uven­tus in t he Cham­pi­ons League but Mour­inho up­set Juve sup­port­ers after the memorable 2-1 vic­tory.

The for­mer In­ter Mi­lan coach man­ager in­sisted he was re­spond­ing to taunts from the Ital­ian fans when he cupped his hands to his ears, bring­ing an an­gry re­sponse from Juve de­fender Leonardo Bonucci. Dy­bala, who scored against United at Old Traf­ford in Juve's 1-0 win last month, also went over to speak to the United boss fol­low­ing his ac­tions after the fi­nal whis­tle. “I just told him that there was no need to make that ges­ture,” Dy­bala told Sky Sport Italia. “There was no need to cre­ate more ten­sion than there al­ready was, some­times you get in­sulted and it's bad, but to cre­ate more ten­sion than there al­ready is… I told him there was no need, I didn't in­sult him. I just told him that and left.” For­mer United star Cris­tiano Ron­aldo volleyed Juve ahead but United came back to hand the Ital­ian cham­pi­ons their first de­feat of the sea­son with two late goals. Juan Mata scored an ex­cel­lent free-kick in the 86th minute and Alex San­dro scored an own goal three min­utes later. Ju­ven­tus top Group H on nine points but United are just two points be­hind in sec­ond with two games re­main­ing.
