"But we played very, very well and this is what we want, we want to play well, we want to go to every stadium, and it doesn't matter the team, and play".
"We can not be better than this and we won against a team with different goals to us at all levels".

Whatever competition they are playing in, and whoever they are playing against, you just can not bet against them and I am always expecting them to score two or three goals. I've been really impressed with how he has managed to force his way into Pep Guardiola's plans.
For Manchester United to go to Turin and beat Juventus was a monumental result when you consider the form the Italian champions are in, and their defensive stability.
I am a student of the game.
More than anything, United's players seem to be enjoying themselves again after a tough start, as Lingard admitted in the wake of the Juventus win.
Four years later, Alex Ferguson's side won 3-0. United manager Mourinho also came back to the country where he'd shone at Juve's rivals Inter Milan. Lots of work to do - it is a marathon not a sprint.
