The 24-year-old Japan international arrived at Old Trafford last summer from Borussia Dortmund with a big reputation and went on to collect a title winners' medal.

However, despite featuring regularly and scoring a fine hat-trick in the 4-0 victory over Norwich, Kagawa feels he can play much better.

"It was a tough time for me, with a lot going on in my head," he said.

"I am not happy with my performance for the team at all. I didn't score that much and I also had my (knee) injury.

"Despite that, it was great we won the league, but I just don't feel that I achieved everything that I wanted.

"For me personally, it wasn't a good season."

David Moyes has now taken over in charge at Old Trafford after Sir Alex Ferguson retired and Kagawa is hopeful of impressing the new man.

"Whenever there is a tough time, whenever it gets difficult for me, I just train and look ahead to the future," he told premierleague.com.

"I always think that I must play well and I always have an image in my mind of how I want to play, wherever the position."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
