Cape Town - Paul Pogba admits it was strange to celebrate a win over Juventus as Manchester United claimed a 2-1 come-from-behind win in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Cristiano Ronaldo had broken the deadlock at the Allianz Stadium with a phenomenal volley on 65 minutes, but an 86th minute Juan Mata free-kick and Alex Sandro own-goal three minutes later, turned the tie on its head.

Pogba, who left United after his first spell to join Juventus, before making his return last season, acknowledged the strangeness he felt during the tie.

After the game, the World Cup winner told BT Sport: "I celebrated, but it was strange. It might have touched a lot of people.

"Lovely, we won. I saw the [Juve] fans, they were very welcoming. I appreciate that.

"We played against a good team with very good players, but the most important thing is the three points.

"I think it's what we’ve been doing for the last few weeks, playing well together and doing well until the end.

"The game is always 90 minutes, we’re pushing, maybe have an extra bit of power at the end, we push it and score."
