A side story of Manchester United’s disappointing start to the David Moyes era has been the curious case of Shinji Kagawa.
Manchester United supporters have been crying out for the Japanese international to be given a run in the first team by Moyes, however the Scot has yet to answer their pleas.
Kagawa himself previously told the press to ‘ask David Moyes’ why he was not in the first team picture, which added fuel to the story that not all was well with the Japanese international.
Moyes has voiced concerns over his fitness first and foremost, but then you must ask the question – is there really the need for such a fuss?
Kagawa is considered a ‘number 10’ – a player who is deployed behind the main striker to create chances, provide assists and score goals.
Whereas the statistics from last season show Kagawa has hardly set the world alight in that position.
There are still those that think given a regular run in the first team, Kagawa could make all the difference for this struggling United side.
But here, we outline five points why Moyes should give up on the Japanese international and search for a new playmaker in January.
