Jose Mourinho confirms Alexis Sanchez is not fit for Juventus clash

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that Alexis Sanchez will play no part of Tuesday's Champions League clash with Juventus.

When asked a question in his mother tongue, he responded "the last time I spoke in Portuguese I was in trouble" in reference to the Football Association charge of using abusive, insulting or improper language following the victory over Newcastle.

It took almost four years for Ronaldo to get his next win - in 90 minutes - over a Mourinho team, as his Inter visited Old Trafford in the Champions League and lost 2-0 in March 2009.

He will have to get a positive result against Juve without Alexis Sanchez who is injured, while Mourinho also confirmed Antonio Valencia is still missing.

"I don't want to speak about Pogba, I don't want to speak about individuals, I don't want to speak to the Spanish journalists because they are only interested in Real Madrid and Ronaldo".

"No, I'm happy here".

He said: "I don't like this press conference". "All I'm thinking about is Manchester United".

Jose Mourinho's season continues to be weird. "It's as simple as that".

Cristiano Ronaldo insisted he is a happy man as he faced the press on Monday night for the first time since allegations of sexual assault surfaced last month.

And Mourinho believes Italian champions are the favourites to win this year's competition.

Mourinho has to answer that charge by Wednesday - the day after facing Juventus without a string of first-team players.

The Portuguese superstar spent six years at Old Trafford, winning three Premier League titles, the Champions League and the Ballon d'Or before moving to Real Madrid in 2009.

Mourinho was encouraged by his side's second-half reaction in coming from behind in a 2-2 against Chelsea on Saturday, despite the disappointment of conceding a 96th-minute equaliser. "No initiative on the ball and no movement", said the Belgian striker.

'The truth always come in the first position.
