Shinji Kagawa is the answer to Manchester United’s creativity problems

Alan Hansen claims Manchester United have lacked creativity at the start of this season. It’s hard to disagree. But as many other pundits and media outlets have cried out for the need of a creative midfield player, Manchester United have one at their disposal; Shinji Kagawa.

Frustrating is perhaps the best word to describe his time at Old Trafford. After a very successful spell with then German Champions Borussia Dortmund, Kagawa came to United, at the same time Eden Hazard joined Chelsea. Plenty of comparisons were made. Both finished the season with silverware, yet Hazard clearly out performed Kagawa. For those that had watched Kagawa in the Bundesliga and the time he spent with Cerezo Osaka in the J.League, it was obvious that English football had not seen the best he has to offer.

Of vital importance for the Blue Samurai (Japan’s National Side), Kagawa should be the creative hub that United are clearly crying out for. Injury hasn’t helped his cause at United and by the start to this season, neither has the change of management. Kagawa’s game time this season has been rather limited. Yet to complete 90 minutes or start a Premier League, Moyes seems rather unsure on how best to use the Japanese playmaker.

Kagawa is obviously disappointed and let the media know that it is out of his hands when it comes to team selection. All he can do is work hard on the training pitch and hope that he is rewarded with more competitive game time. Only time will tell, but for anyone claiming United need to sign a quality creative midfielder, believe me when I say they already have one.
