Shinji Kagawa impresses for Man United in win over Sociedad [Individual Highlights]
- October 24, 2013
“I thought it was Shinji’s best game in my time here. He hadn’t really found his feet yet but I saw something from Shinji tonight which I hadn’t seen in other games, so I was really pleased. His effort when we didn’t have the ball was fantastic. With Shinji, everybody tells me about his ability and what he has got, but tonight is the first time I’ve really seen Shinji. I thought when we put him into the no.10 role, and even after it, he was good with Wayne. His attitude and energy were excellent and I was pleased for him.” – Manchester United manager David Moyes.
Shinji Kagawa’s performance against Real Sociedad in the Champions League on Wednesday night may have been the breakthrough display the Japanese playmaker has been tipped to make for Manchester United under David Moyes.
In particular, there was a 10 minute spell at the end of the match where Kagawa was pushed into a number 10 role – his preferred position – and excellent, especially showing a fine understanding with Wayne Rooney.
Whether Kagawa can be played centrally under Moyes is questionable, especially when Robin van Persie and Rooney are fit and available, but for his many supporters, the display against Sociedad was a real positive.
