Shinji Kagawa Must Adapt If He Is to Star for Manchester United

BR - Shinji Kagawa is a top-class footballer and Manchester United are a world-class team, but the question remains: Can these two bring the best out of each other?

Kagawa was one of Borussia Dortmund's most vital players in their back to back Bundesliga title victories, after he arrived from Japanese club side Cerezo Osaka for a meagre £350k. He formed an integral part of Jurgan Klopp's all conquering side, playing in the No.10 role behind Polish centre-forward Robert Lewandowski. (English Premier League, Manchester United)

its too early to say anything on Kagawa's United career he has shown he has talent but is still adapting to the Premiership and United's style of football.

also Dortmund built their team around players like him while United havnt so will take time it wasnt untill Silva's 2nd season that he trully started to show what he could do.

I agree and he has only started 6 games for United. I think once he has settled in and learned the language he will really make an impact.

As a Leeds supporter who really likes Kagawa as a player, I hope that Manchester United is not the right destination for him in the end. I hope he does well but would rather he moved to a club where they could make full use of him.

its not that united aren't making full use of him.. he just needs time to adapt to BPL, once he does he will do great! just takes time.
