Manchester United’s Japanese midfielder Shinji Kagawa has openly admitted that he must improve his football if is he is to survive at the club.
Kagawa was substituted at half-time for Adnan Januzaj in Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat against West Brom last weekend, taking his substitution as a message that he must improve.
Speaking with the Daily Mail, he said:
“I have to take this like some kind of message [from David Moyes].
“I thought that I would have been able to find some space to create the chances in the second half
“I need to improve more and more, or I cannot survive at this club.
“I have to take this in a positive way and keep trying to do my best.”
“In that sense I was disappointed.
“Sure, I wasn’t involved that much. I didn’t touch the ball enough but I was trying to be patient so I didn’t feel that bad.”
Kagawa joined Manchester United for £17million from Borussia Dortmund last year, scoring six time in his debut season with the highlight being his hat-trick against Norwich City at Old Trafford.
The United squad and staff travel from Manchester to Donetsk this afternoon for their Champions League clash, no doubt Shinji Kagawa will be in the squad.
