Ahead of our FA Cup fixture with Fulham, this Saturday afternoon, there`s a surprising admission from our Japanese summer signing, Shinji Kagawa.
Kagawa, who it should be pointed out has been affected by injuries since signing on the dotted line, has admitted that he has still to show his true form, remarking in the media,
"I`m really feeling that I need to perform better."
"I`m not satisfied with what I have done here at all."
"It`s a big and really famous club in the world, and I need to overcome lots of pressures and be mentally stronger."
"Unfortunately, I got injured, but I have to be better and grow as a player and a person, in terms of contributing to the team`s wins and succeeding here."
Perhaps somebody should point out that even established stars sometimes have a difficult first year in the Premier League!
