Paulo Dybala reveals what he said to Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho

"I told him there was no need, I didn't insult him".

The close friends reunited in Turin this week as Jose Mourinho's side snatched three points from the Italian outfit late on. But what is behind, I can not say.

"It's a very important match for two reasons. because it's the Manchester derby and also because if we win we will put distance between ourselves and them in the table".

"After that, of course, there is a quality of the work, of the organisation, I think that is untouchable".

Mourinho said: "I focus on the four lines, focus on football".

It left Mourinho's side just two points behind leaders Juventus with two matches to play in Group H.

Yet some felt that Mourinho had taken the attention away from his players and the desire they showed to come back from 1-0 to record a memorable win.

The Portuguese previously indicated United - seventh in the table going into the weekend - can not consider themselves in the title race until they climb into the top four.

"I want to play it as an isolated match, a difficult match against a difficult team, but they will also think it's a difficult match for them". "But you are right, Manchester City is a very powerful team".

He said: "If we keep conceding goals before the opponent, it will arrive the day where we can not come back". "Against Juventus it happened, we conceded the goal in minute 60 or something like that and we had a good start". "I didn't offend anyone at the end, I just made a gesture that I wanted to hear them louder".

However, Pogba was conspicuous by his absence from United's training session on Friday - an unneeded injury scare ahead of Sunday's derby at the Etihad Stadium, where he netted a brace in April's 3-2 victory.

Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku has missed United's past two matches with a muscle problem, but could return against City.

It is hard for me to answer because I focus on my job, I focus on the four lines, focus on football, if you want to speak about their football potential we can speak and football potential starts with investment after that of course there is a quality of the work, of the organisation, I think that is untouchable but what is behind it I cannot say.
