"It is not easy getting players in January. That was really Kevin's problem," said the Old Trafford boss. "He has not really had time to get those in he wanted. He's had to rely on the players he's got.
"I haven't spoken to Kevin for ages. He was out of the game for three years of course. I am looking forward to seeing him.
"People go about mind games and get carried away with it. It is an over-played thing."
