Ronaldo bemoans Juventus’s Champions League ”present” to Manchester United

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo said that his former club Manchester United did nothing to deserve their 2-1 win over the Turin side in Wednesday`s Champions League tie.

“We dominated the match, we had more chances and we could have finished it off,” the Portuguese talisman said in post-match television interviews. 

“Manchester did nothing to deserve the win, it wasn`t even lucky because you make your own luck. It was just our present to them.”

The defeat was Juventus`s first in 15 games in all competitions since Cristiano Ronaldo signed from Spanish giants Real Madrid in July.

Ronaldo had given Juventus a 65th minute lead with a typically stunning strike before the visitors hit back twice in the last five minutes.

“I didn`t realise it was a fantastic goal until I saw the replay,” he said. “I was happy for the goal but disappointed because we should have won the game easily by three or four goals.”
