Kagawa aims to improve strength

first_img The former Borussia Dortmund playmaker has struggled to establish himself at Old Trafford but earned praise for his display against Swansea last weekend. The Japan international was moved into a central position for the second half and excelled as United struck twice to claim a morale-boosting 2-0 win in the Barclays Premier League. Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa believes he needs to get stronger to make a greater impact in England. There has been debate about the 24-year-old’s future but the player himself feels he knows where to improve. Kagawa told ManUtd.jp: “I think I can still improve my strength. “I’m not the tallest or biggest player, so I have to move my body more. “Smaller players in the Premier League are very good at using their bodies (to get past the opposition) and that’s what I will continue to do. “I realise the Premier League is a very tough league and I know I have to be stronger.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
