Shinji Kagawa completes Borussia Dortmund return

Published Add your comment

Manchester United attacking playmaker Shinji Kagawa has returned to Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund.

The 25-year-old midfielder has struggled in England for two years after a £14m move back in the summer of 2012, despite fleeing moments of quality that hinted at his true potential.

On Sunday his time at Old Trafford came to a premature end though, with Borussia Dortmund buying back the Japanese playmaker for £12.5m.

Sir Alex's signing fails to deliver

After joining Manchester United in 2012, Sir Alex Ferguson used Kagawa mainly in the Champions League and the attacking midfielder failed to make his mark in his first season at the Old Trafford, in which he scored six times in 26 games.

Under David Moyes Kagawa made 30 appearances in all competitions, yet more than 20 of these were from the bench.

This season, Shinji only played in the League Cup against MK Dons, who trashed the Red Devils 4-0.

After two terrible years in England, Borussia Dortmund decided to end this spell and brought Kagawa back home.

During last season, fans of Borussia started a campaign, called #FreeShinji to try end the spell of the talented midfielder in Manchester United and now Kagawa is free and is back home.
