Cristiano Ronaldo an example for all young players to follow, says Lukaku

Our heads were in Manchester – Allegri left fuming at Juventus' loss of focus

The pre-match build-up has been dominated by Ronaldo given the Portuguese star carved out his early success at United between 2003-09 and he is set to play the defining role for the Italian visitors on Tuesday night.

Kathryn Mayorga filed a civil lawsuit last month in Nevada claiming Ronaldo raped her in his Las Vegas hotel room in 2009.

Cristiano Ronaldo is confident he will be cleared of an allegation of rape, with the Juventus forward pledging to keep smiling and enjoying his life ahead of facing former club Manchester United.

Alexis Sanchez missed Manchester United's final training session before their Champions League clash with Juventus.

Mourinho added: "I'm not happy that it's going too far with the young boy. They are a fantastic team, they have an experienced coach but I expect and hope Juventus win the game".

"I have everything. So the rest, it doesn't interfere on me". I think the press conference is going in other directions.

Massimiliano Allegri's side have won all eight of their opening Serie A matches and are on course to make it nine out of nine if they beat Genoa. The most important thing is that I enjoy football and enjoy life.

"The truth always comes in first position".

"When that starts clicking I think then the results I had with Belgium will come also over here".

"I don't want to compare Real and Juve".

At one stage, Ronaldo looked to be in danger of missing the game entirely after he was shown a red card in Juve's Champions League opener against Valencia for pulling Jeison Murillo's hair, but in the end he was only given a one-match ban.

'Here I really do my best, I just push myself to the maximum and that's something at Milan I really didn't manage.

Eric Bailly is pushing for a recall but I think Mourinho will stick with Victor Lindelof alongside Chris Smalling in the middle of defence.

When it came to talk about his future at United, which was in jeopardy two weeks ago according to a report, Mourinho was adamant he will remain at Old Trafford, despite suggestions he could head back to Real Madrid for a second spell.
