Kagawa ready for the spotlight

Published Add your comment

Shinji Kagawa is confident he has the mental strength to cope with the attention of being Japan's first Manchester United player.

Kagawa attended his first United media event at Old Trafford on Thursday when it quickly became obvious what an attraction he is going to be. The amount of Japanese media in attendance dwarfed the number of Korean counterparts who used to follow Park Ji-sung around during his time at Old Trafford.

Those numbers will swell still further once the new Premier League campaign starts in August, but the £17million midfielder, signed from Borussia Dortmund, does not view it as a problem. He said: "I definitely feel the attention of the media globally now I am a member of a great squad like Manchester United."
