Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp embracing each other during Saturday’s league clash. Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho rejected the idea that his team went to Liverpool for a point and said Saturday’s 0-0 Jurgen Klopp’s tactics as much as his own. United, who moved to 20 points from eight games, showed little ambition to attack and did not manage a single shot on goal in the second half but Mourinho said he had been waiting for Klopp’s side to open up in search of a win. Asked if a point was his target in the game, Mourinho said: “No, we came for three but in the second half we felt (it match, the dynamic as it was. “I was waiting for Jurgen to change and go more attacking but he kept the three strong he was having control because Australia’s Jeff Horn will defend his WBO welterweight title against England’s Gary Corcoran in December before a potential blockbuster bout with UFC star Conor McGregor, reports said on Sunday. Horn stunned Manny Pacquiao in a unanimous 12-round points decision in July, with the Filipino great pulling out of a planned rematch later this year. This has opened the door to Corcoran, with the bout set for 13 December in Brisbane as part Queensland state government, the Brisbane Courier-Mail said. “Corcoran is 26, so he’s three years younger than me – he’s very the newspaper. “He’s a dangerous guy. I know what it’s like to be a determined underdog just like he is going I had only (Ander) Herrera and (Nemanja) Matic,” said the United manager. Mourinho noted the absence United bench, caused by injuries to Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick, but also defended his approach by highlighting that he had brought on attacking players Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford in the second half. “When I brought on Lingard and Rashford I was waiting for him (Klopp) to give me more space to counter but he didn’t give me. So I know that probably you think we were defensive and they were offensive – well, you are at home and you don’t move anything. I don’t know? I was waiting for that and he didn’t. I think he did well, honestly. “The game was never broken, they pressed high, they recovered the ball, so I think they “This is his golden opportunity to do what I did against Pacquiao, but there are millions of dollars 2018, so I can’t let this guy come to my home town and wreck all my good work.” Known as “Hell Raiser”, Corcoran has 17 wins and one defeat to Horn’s 17 wins and one draw. He told World Boxing News earlier this month he was keen of his career. “Horn is there to beat, I can beat him. I’ve sparred with country, I can win a world title,” Corcoran said. If he wins, Horn then hopes to McGregor, who made his boxing debut in a money-spinning were very good by the defensive point of view. “The only chance I had to change the direction of the game was to bring on players for oneon-one, players with speed and maybe they are going to change (the game), but they didn’t,” added Mourinho. However, the Portuguese manager seemed unconcerned that such a highly anticipated game had ended in a dull stalemate, which left Liverpool seven points behind United. “It depends on what is for you an entertaining game. One think is an entertaining game for fans, others think is an entertaining game for people who read football in a different way. That’s different. “For me, the second half was a bit of chess, but my opponent didn’t open the door for me to win the game.” - Supersport. com Horn lines up Corcoran, wants UFC’s McGregor defeat to Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas in August. Charismatic Irishman Mc- Gregor performed creditably and said afterwards he was open to boxing again, potentially placing him on a collision course with his Ultimate Fighting Championship paymasters. Promoter Dean Lonergan told state broadcaster ABC he was working on a second event in Brisbane before 30 June next year. “We’d love to have Manny Pacquiao down here (again), he’s certainly one of the guys on the table,” he said. “There’s been some murmurings and rumblings that perhaps we could get Conor McGregor down here. “I would put the challenge out to Conor McGregor - tell me how much you want it and we’ll see if we can make it work.” - Nampa/AFP
