After a slow start to his Manchester United career because of injury, Shinji Kagawa is playing more regularly and starting to settle at the club.

“I’m in a fantastic environment, training every day with top players,” he told United Review. “At the same time, being with a big club like Manchester United, I know we are always expected to win trophies, which I haven’t accomplished yet. I love playing at Old Trafford, though, and I’m always amazed by the atmosphere of the stadium. We’ve managed many come-from-behind wins this season, which is very difficult. But if we go 1-0 down and then equalise, the feeling of unity between the supporters and players is incredible. Those moments encourage the players and make us feel like we can score another goal at any time.”
