Sir Alex Ferguson has already worked on trying to mould Japanese star, Shinji Kagawa’s game, as he looks to add a more direct style and goal threat to it.
The Manchester United boss is trying to add that extra element to the former Borussia Dortmund midfielder’s game in the same way he did to Antonio Valencia, when he joined the club.
There has been a clear emphasis on telling Kagawa to not turn his back to goal and always looks for the shortest route to the back of the net.
Talking to The Independent, Ferguson explained that “face the goal or you won’t be a threat,” was his basic advice to the player who is trying to impose himself on the Premier League.
Next up for Man United is a home game against Stoke City on 20th October.
