Japanese international wastes no time in settling in back at the Westfalenstadion.
It’s fair to say that Shinji Kagawa failed to deliver the goods during his two seasons at Man United but it’s unlikely that any fan of the Old Trafford side would doubt the Japanese international’s raw ability.
The 25 year old had a steady debut season under Sir Alex Ferguson and was perhaps growing into the role, his hat-trick against Norwich City perhaps a sign of his effectiveness in the final third when played in a role that best suited his attributes.

Under David Moyes his chances came few and far between and the Scot insisted on using Kagawa in a position that simply didn’t suit him and a move back to Borussia Dortmund is one that is likely to work well for the Kobe born star and could serve to prove Louis van Gaal wrong.
The Dutch manager has of course got a myriad of flair players who can support his out and out striking talents, with Angel di Maria, Juan Mata, Adnan Januzaj and Wayne Rooney able to sit in such a slot, Kagawa didn’t take long to make an impact back at the Westfalenstadion.
Kagawa provided an assist in his second debut for Dortmund and also scored a goal, this calmly finished effort against Freiburg.
