Shinji Kagawa’s former club, Borussia Dortmund, played in the Champions League final this year, but he insists he has no regrets about leaving them for us.
“I felt very proud to see them in the final and I was excited. It was good for them,” he said. “But I don’t feel I made the wrong choice. It made me feel stronger that I wanted to get to play in that final one day. I am very happy about being a United player and I am looking forward to seeing all my fans and doing my best.”
Kagawa didn’t set the world alight during his first season, although showed flashes of what he is capable of. He is hoping to impress next season though, regardless of what position he plays in.
“I had some problems last season with injuries and am hoping for a better season,” he continued. “But playing as a number ten doesn’t matter to me. I just want to be in the team.”
