Ronaldo, sent off in last month's 2-0 win over Valencia, missed his first game since joining the Turin club in July but Juventus made light of his absence as they cantered to their ninth straight win of the season in all competitions.

"I don't need to know what he said", said Mourinho.

On his defenders' performance, the Portuguese said: "They tried, they raised the level of their intensity".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is embarrassing the Premier League giants, according to Paul Scholes, who is surprised the club are standing by the former Chelsea boss.

"I'm not pleased, of course, with the result, which is not a good result but is not a bad result".

Following the 0-0 draw with Los Che, Mourinho was asked whether or not he had heard what Scholes said.

'What I can say from the inside is that the lads are calm, working every day with a good attitude.

José Mourinho gave a damning appraisal of his Manchester United players' abilities after they were booed off on another grim night at Old Trafford. We don't have the technical quality to build from the back.

The 43-year-old former England global has been a stern critic of Mourinho, who in turn has hit back at the one-time United stalwart. "He said what he wants to say, I'm not interested, honestly, I'm not interested". We knew we wouldn't create 20 chances.

And Mourinho levelled the blame squarely at the feet of local police for causing unnecessary problems for United in the build-up to the match.

United's second-place finish last term flattered their cagey performances, but the formula - heavily reliant on goalkeeper David De Gea's consistent heroics - was less likely to yield success this season.
