Rarely has a player been afforded so much goodwill and so many excuses based on so little evidence. Every Manchester United fan and even most neutrals were desperate for Kagawa to succeed. We all claimed to see glimpses last season (when he repeatedly said he was playing way below his own high standards), read the quotes from a tearful Jurgen Klopp and then waited with arms folded for the real Kagawa to step forward - whether it be from the left or the middle. And we're still waiting. A cause celebre amongst United fans when he was absent from the side, he has silenced his supporters with performances that have been largely forgettable during a season in which United's results have been anything but.
