Shinji Kagawa failed to convince David Moyes as well as his successor Louis Van Gaal for a regular playing time at Manchester United. After having a fantastic season in the German league the midfielder had left Dortmund to join Manchester United back in 2012 for £12 million.
The Japanese international was however allowed to leave Old Trafford this summer and rejoin his former club Borussia Dortmund for £6.3million after he failed to make an impact for the English club.
Borussia Dortmund's manager Jurgen Klopp has claimed that Kagawa's treatment at Manchester United reduced him to tears. Team mate Sebastian Kehl also believes that Kagawa could get back in his form after his return to Dortmund.
Kehl stated, 'you could see that it was a huge relief for Shinji Kagawa [to have left Manchester United for Dortmund],' 'It was not an easy situation for him at Manchester in the past few weeks. And then there were some comments from his coach that prompted him to return to Dortmund.
'He gets a lot of faith here. Everything that he's been missing in the past few months, he'll get back here again,' He added.
Kagawa too looked pleased on his return to his former club. On a recent interview he stated, 'The day I left, I said in an interview that the chapter Borussia Dortmund was not closed in my life. I wanted to fulfill my dream of playing in the Premier League.
'Now I am simply delighted to be back in Dortmund with this fantastic team and set-up and these unique fans. 'BVB is like a family and I am proud that they did not forget me and that I can belong to it once more.’
Shinji Kagawa relieved after leaving Manchester United, says Dortmund team-mate Sebastian Kehl.
