Has Moyes Turned A Corner Regarding Shinji Kagawa’s Involvement at Manchester United?

David Moyes has had a sticky start to his life at Manchester United. Not only have they suffered their worst start ever to a Premier League season, but last season’s top scorer in the Premier League Robin van Persie has failed to hit any form. As well as that, the defence has been mix and matched, and the options down the flanks doesn’t seem to be working. But I want to focus in one area in particular, and that’s the more central areas behind the striker.

Shinji Kagawa is the man who I want to discuss, as the nation have already vented their frustrations about the situation, but did his inclusion in the Champions League against Real Sociedad mark Moyes’ change of mind regarding the Japan international?

His 20 appearances and six goals was deemed good enough by the United fans last season, as was his 90% pass accuracy, but after a little niggle in pre season it seems as though his Old Trafford days were over. But Moyes has now deployed the little playmaker in 2/3 of the European games.

In those, he’s created three chances, completed 85% of his passes and won 50% of his duels.

Should Kagawa have a proper run in the side then there is no knowing what heights he could hit, and I for one hope he gets the chance.
