Kagawa: I Used To Watch United On TV When I Was A Child

Shinji Kagawa has revealed that he has read up on the history of his new club and that he used to watch United on the TV when he was a kid.

“I know about all those historical events in the past, like the Munich air crash,” Kagawa told the official site. “For me, personally, the fact that an Asian player, Ji-Sung Park, played for the club had a big impact on me. I used to watch United matches on TV when I was little.”

Kagawa also compared his new team with the one he left behind, German champions Dortmund, who finished top of their Champions League group this season.

“Dortmund is a team with young players who don’t have much experience. But we were united and worked very hard as a team,” he said. “Here at Manchester United we have a lot of experienced players who know how to play in big games. The club have won many titles and I feel every single player has a lot of potential. We’re particularly blessed with a lot of attacking players, who can create various openings in the game, and world-class strikers like Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.”
