Manchester United have spent big during the summer but José Mourinho is far from fully satisfied with his first team.

“He was not ruthless enough in the off season,” the former England international said.

“There is so much confusion about who should play.

“What I saw of Mourinho at Chelsea, he had 13 or 14 players who played every week. He never rested players, even in the League Cup or whatever competition he was in.

“With United it is still a settling-in period – it is going to take a bit of time for them to knit together and see what they are about.

“Is there an identity to the team yet? I don’t think there is.”

You can see Jurgen Klopp has stamped his way of playing football on the team,” he said.

“There is a definite way about them. You know how they are going to play. They are going to be quick, they are going to try to take the ball off you and try to score goals by flooding the box.

“I was worried about them defensively – but they have already played some of the big teams and they are a real threat.
