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.
