The Japanese midfielder has added a nice touch to the team since he joined it from Borussia Dortmund for £17 million this summer.
“We’re very pleased with Shinji. Adapting to English football isn’t easy but bit by bit he’s getting down to that part,” said the Boss, pleased.
However, Fergie said that he still needs to work hard.
“Don’t face the goal with your back, but move your body so you have a short way to the goal. Shape your body so you are facing the stands”’ Kagawa said. “I have to face the goal or I won’t be a threat.”
The Japanese wonder kid recognizes all the challenges he has to suffer from while playing English football. He said, “ I’ve realised that I need to limber up and strengthen my body trunk.”
According to Kagawa, he has learnt greatly from United’s match against Galatasaray in the Champions League. Despite the poor show, United still won the match.
“Dortmund would have lost that match. I think that winning a game that way is characteristic of a big club,” said the 23-year old Japanese.
“The level of expectation is very high and that means that the team is not in a hurry to win. That’s the main difference with Dortmund.”
Kagawa has scored two goals out of the six appearances that he made.
