Kagawa: first Japanese player at Man U can adapt
Fri, 13 Jul 2012 7:31a.m.
Japan playmaker Shinji Kagawa has described his move to Manchester United as the greatest challenge of his career after signing a four-year contract to transfer from Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund.
The 23-year-old Kagawa, who is United's first ever Japanese player, won the Bundesliga and German Cup double with Dortmund last season.
Kagawa said Thursday that "I'm a member of a great club at Manchester United," and "I think I can handle the pressure and am pretty confident I can adapt to the style of the Premier League."
United coach Alex Ferguson enthused about Kagawa's record in scoring 21 goals in 49 appearances for Dortmund since joining in 2010.
Ferguson says Kagawa "could make a difference" and if "his goal-scoring record continues he could be a very good player for us."
