Former Manchester United manager David Moyes "never trusted" midfield maestro Shinji Kagawa and was left dismayed by his attitude at arriving late for a flight to their crunch Champions League clash with Bayern Munich, according to the Daily Mail.

Moyes' lost his job as United boss yesterday, less than 10 months after being picked by Sir Alex Ferguson as the man to build on his legacy at Old Trafford.

A disastrous season campaign which has left United languishing a whopping 23 points behind league leaders Liverpool forced Red Devils chiefs to deliver the axe on Tuesday, less than 48 hours after a 2-0 defeat to former club Everton had mathematically ended their chances of qualifying for the Champions League.

With United attempting to clear the decks reports of widespread discontent are emerging thick and fast, including a complete breakdown in the relationship between Moyes and Kagawa early on in the campaign.

The Mail reported this morning that Kagawa arrived so late for United's flight to Munich earlier this month that he had to be fast-tracked through departures by the club's security staff, doing so with a "fixed smile" that showed no disappointment in his own actions.

Kagawa has endured a difficult campaign and regularly failed to show Moyes that he deserved a regular run in the side, starting only his 11th Premier League game of the season at Goodison Park last weekend.

The Japanese international now has a difficult task on his hands to show United fans and any incoming permanent manager that he deserves another chance to shine at the Theatre of Dreams, after largely failing to match the hype that saw him arrive in Manchester in 2012 with a reputation as the driving force behind Borussia Dortmund's recent success.
