Manchester United boss David Moyes has revealed Shinji Kagawa will play ‘some part’ in the Premier League champions’ crucial Champions League tie against Olympiakos on Wednesday night.
The Red Devils go into tomorrow’s game at Old Trafford 2-0 down after losing the first leg of their last-16 tie against the Greek side.
Kagawa has been used sparingly during his first two seasons at Old Trafford - much to the fans disgust - however Moyes has confirmed the 25-year-old will be given a chance to shine tomorrow.
Moyes, speaking ahead of Manchester United’s game against Olympiakos, said on Kagawa: "He's someone we really like and he'll definitely be involved at some point."
The Japanese playmaker came on for the last 29 minutes against Olympiakos in the first leg but was unable to help Manchester United pull at least one goal back.
Kagawa, who turned 25 on Monday, will be competing with the likes of Adnan Januzaj, Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young to start tomorrow’s game at Old Trafford.
The former Dortmund star has not started a game for Manchester United since his side’s Capital One Cup defeat on penalties against Sunderland on January 22.
