Injuries and adapting to the English game means that his debut season will be regarded as up and down but Kagawa has begun to show the brilliance that he showed at Dortmund recently, including a hat trick against Norwich last month and 2 assists against West Ham last week.
This is good news for United in regards to the ending of this season as well as the next but the Japanese playmaker is somewhat disappointed and feels he has more to offer and didn’t really show his true self:
“I was looking to produce even more results. I was injured and I felt things didn’t go well easily.
“I had a lot of conflict, frustration and worries. In that sense, I think it has been a profound year.
“Honestly, I haven’t contributed as much as I did at Dortmund.
“I was even injured. I still don’t quite have that feeling of accomplishment.”
