#FreeShinji: David Moyes says he had to make straight choice between Nani & Kagawa on the bench

Manchester United were beaten for the first time this season at Anfield, losing 1-0 to long-time rivals Liverpool.

A talking point before kick-off was Shinji Kagawa’s exclusion from the entire match squad, despite Wayne Rooney’s injury.

The Japanese play-a-maker is yet to start in a competitive match under David Moyes and fans of Borussia Dortmund recently started a Twitter campaign to FreeShinji.

Asked about Kagawa’s exclusion in his post-match press conference, David Moyes explained that he had to make a straight choice between Kagawa and Nani for a place on the bench.

Although this makes a little more sense, as Nani is more of an ‘impact player’, it is a true shame to see a talented footballer like Shinji Kagawa receiving such little playing time.

Could a deadline day loan move back to Dortmund be on the cards? Doubtful.
