Shinji Kagawa vows to improve with United next season

Shinji Kagawa has expressed his dissapointment at having a poor first season for Manchester United and has vowed that he will improve next season under David Moyes.

Kagawa arrived at Manchester United last summer after impressing at Borussia Dortmund. In his first United season he scored six goals in 26 appearances, but Kagawa himself feels that he had a bad season.


The Japanese international was troubled with an ankle injury that ruled him out for nine-weeks from October 2012.

He said:

“It was a tough time for me with a lot going on in my head, I am not happy with my performance for the team at all.

“I didn’t score that much and I also had my injury. Despite that, it was great we won the league – I just don’t feel that I achieved everything that I wanted. For me personally, it wasn’t a good season.”

Moving to Manchester United was a dream move for Shinji Kagawa, now he wants to crack on with pre-season when the players report back to Carrington next Wednesday before flying to Thailand to start their 2013 pre-season tour.

Speaking with the Premier League website, he continued to add:

“I always think that I must play well, and I always have an image in my mind of how I want to play, wherever the position. Whenever there is a tough time, whenever it gets difficult for me, I just train and look ahead to the future.”

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
