Shinji Kagawa stars in new Kirin Beer advert

Published Add your comment

Manchester United outcast Shinji Kagawa has finally landed himself some playing time, after starring in a new Japanese advert for Kirin Beer, reports the Daily Mirror.

The 24-year-old midfielder has fallen out of first-team favour ever since joining the Premier League champions in 2012, but that hasn't affected his commercial value in Asia.

Kagawa can be seen weaving past a number of samurai swordsmen, before firing into the net with power and precision.

Red Devils boss David Moyes has so far used the former Borussia Dortmund star sparingly since succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

Suited and booted in this Kirin Beer advert, Kagawa will be hoping that his TV cameo, twinned with a substitute appearance in Manchester United's Champions League last-16 clash against Olympiakos in midweek will be the start of a revial in his fortunes this season.
