Cristiano Ronaldo has aimed a dig at Manchester United’s tactics after the Red Devils sealed a thrilling 2-1 win at Juventus, claiming that the English team “didn’t do much” in the game.

Ronaldo had put Juventus 1-0 up in the 65th minute with a fine volley and the Italian side looked to be heading towards the victory.

However, Juan Mata’s free-kick levelled the score, and Alex Sandro’s own goal in the 89th minute secured all three points for the Red Devils and boosted their hopes of reaching the last 16 of the Champions League.

Former Manchester United star Ronaldo was seemingly not particularly impressed with the Red Devils’ approach to the game and claimed that Juventus were clearly the better side on the night.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Ronaldo said: “I was happy for the goal, but are a little bit disappointed because we should win the game easily, [by] three or four goals.

“Manchester didn’t do much, in my opinion. They create two chances at set-pieces. English teams always looking for the set-pieces.

“But we learned from out mistakes and we are still top of the group, so we are good.”

The victory left Manchester United second in their Champions League group and just two points behind Juventus with two games left to play in the group stage.

Manchester United will now turn their focus towards the small matter of their Premier League showdown against Manchester City in the top flight on Sunday afternoon at The Etihad.

Jose Mourinho’s men will be looking to try and derail Pep Guardiola’s Premier League leaders, who are unbeaten and two points clear at the top of the table as things stand.
