Kagawa has acknowledged that he hasn’t been at his best yet but he is focussing on the positives.
“To be honest, I don’t believe I have yet cemented my place (in the team),” Kagawa told Kyodo News. “There is not one game that I can be satisfied with the way I played over the 90 minutes. I still feel I need more time to adapt. It is fate for any player that plays for a big club and I am trying to draw on the positives. I need to communicate better so I can get my timing right when asking for the ball and things like that. But more importantly I need to push and show my strengths. You gain trust when you deliver results.”
