The Portuguese coach kept his hand on his ear the whole time after United defeated Juve 2-1 after claiming he had been abused throughout the match.
United failed in the night with an impressive goal from Cristiano Ronaldo. Later, however, a rally came when Juan Mata built an excellent free kick and an own goal secured all three points.

"I just told him that there's no need to make that gesture," Dybala told Sky Sport Italia.
"There was no need to build more tension than it already was, sometimes you get insulted and it's bad, but more exciting than it already is …
"I told him there was no need, I did not insult him, I just told him and left."
Bonucci, Bentacur and Dybala talked to Mourinho when he left (Getty). Speaking of the gesture, Mourinho said, "I was offended for 90 minutes. I do my work and nothing more. In the end, I did not insult anyone, I just made the gesture that I wanted to hear them more.
"I would not do it again. But I came here as a professional doing his job and people have insulted my family. That's why I reacted that way. I do not want to think about it. "
