Gary Neville has hailed new signing Shinji Kagawa, claiming that the Japanese international could have a similar impact as Javier Hernandez or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United secured the signing of Kagawa from German champions Borussia Dortmund in June, and he was unveiled to the press yesterday alongside Nick Powell.

Having played a starring role in the back to back title winning Borussia Dortmund team, Neville is confident that Kagawa can come in and do a job at United.

Ahead of United’s pre season ventures to Africa, mainland Europe and Asia, Neville spoke enthusiastically to ManUtd.Com about our new signing:

“I’m really excited about watching him play and seeing how he fits in with the other talented players in this squad. He’s had a fantastic couple of seasons at Dortmund, who have been magnificent in Germany.

“It’s not easy to knock Bayern Munich off their perch. And if you look at the performances, Kagawa has played a big part in that.

“He might be one of these lads that comes to United and sneaks under the radar a little bit. He’s not what you’d class as one of Europe’s stellar names at the moment. But he could be somebody who has the same sort of impact as Chicharito or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and go on to become a real sensation for United.”

Can Kagawa fire Manchester United to the Premier League title this season?
