Spurs were 1-0 up at Wembley for a 3-2 aggregate lead in the last 16 - thanks to Son Heung-min's 39th-minute goal. William Gallas has also blamed his former club's "lack of experience".
United entertain Sevilla on Tuesday following a goalless first leg in Spain, before Chelsea play at Barcelona on Wednesday after it finished 1-1 at Stamford Bridge. "Of course because the team deserved more", he added.
Tottenham will be bitter disappointed with the way they conceded two goals in quick succession in the second half. I don't feel like that. We should have scored a lot of goals in the first half.
Spurs looked comfortable in the early knockings of the second half until a crafty double substitution from Massimiliano Allegri changed the entire complexion of the match.
"But I think our players are experienced enough". They are lacking this little edge you need to win games like this, maybe. "That's the main thing".
"We had to be concentrated and score when we had our chances".
And in the dying seconds Harry Kane thought he had taken the tie to extra time, only to see his header come back off the inside of the far post before being cleared off the line. "It's sad and it hurts a lot, but we can be proud". "After the game, the dressing room was quieter than normal". At the end it is win or lose.
Juventus were certain that they should have had a 17th-minute penalty when Jan Vertonghen slid in on Costa and brought him down but - despite furious appeals - referee Szymon Marciniak gave only a goal kick. "I can't sleep tonight".
And so, it was Juventus who drew on their considerable defensive fortitude to weather a late storm and go romping through into the quarter-finals.
"Yes, definitely we'll learn".
Juventus go through to the next round of the champions league at the cost of Tottenham's despair.
"We played another massive team".
"Sure, four years ago we are not this experienced, but growing up year by year, match by match, we improve with many players".
Son continued to terrorise Juve's defence, first heading straight at Buffon after 19 minutes and then drilling an effort narrowly wide moments before he finally beat the Italian stalwart with a scuffed effort shortly before the break.
"I don't know. It's the referee's decision".
"It's fantastic to win a game at Wembley, a temple of football".
"You are going to find games that are hard".
