The Portuguese coach cupped his hand to his ear at full-time following Uniteds stunning come-from-behind 2-1 victory away to Juve, having claimed he was the subject of abuse throughout the match.
United went behind on the night to a stunning strike from Cristiano Ronaldo, but rallied late on as Juan Mata put away an excellent free-kick and an own goal secured all three points.
When Mourinho goaded the home fans, he was quickly confronted by the likes of Dybala and Leonardo Bonucci, and the Argentine felt he could have shown more tact.
I just told him that there was no need to make that gesture, Dybala told Sky Sport Italia.
There was no need to create more tension than there already was, sometimes you get insulted and its bad, but to create more tension than there already is…
I told him there was no need, I didnt insult him. I just told him that and left.
Speaking about the gesture, Mourinho said: I was insulted for 90 minutes. I do my work and nothing more. At the end I didnt insult anyone, I just did the gesture that I wanted to hear them more.
I wouldnt do it again. But I came here as a professional that does his work and people insulted my family, this is why I reacted this way. I dont want to think about it.
