Ed Woodward welcomed JOSE MOURINHO following the Red Devils’ comeback win over Juventus. 

JOSE MOURINHO was welcomed home by Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward following the Red Devils’ comeback win over Juventus. 

Manchester United took a huge step towards qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League with a shock 2-1 win over Juventus in Turin.

The Red Devils stunned the Group H leaders with a Juan Mata free-kick and a late own-goal from Alex Sandro, cancelling out Cristiano Ronaldo’s outrageous volley.

Juve had enjoyed a perfect record in the Champions League ahead of last night’s match, but United are now just two points behind the Italian champions and realistically need one more win to qualify for the next round.

Jose Mourinho clashed with several opposition players after the final whistle, having cupped his ear to home fans at the Allianz Stadium.

The Portuguese boss has been criticised for his actions, particularly in light of the bust-up with Chelsea coach Marco Ianni following the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge last month.

However, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is obviously not too bothered about Mourinho’s behaviour judging by their reunion at Manchester Airport.

The pair, who have reportedly often been at loggerheads over transfer policy since Mourinho’s arrival at Old Trafford in 2016, was seen shaking hands as the United squad returned home in the early hours.

Woodward had a big grin on his face after the impressive away victory, although Mourinho looks slightly uncomfortable about the impromptu photo opportunity.
