VIDEO: Kagawa takes on nine players at once

Ever wondered what would happen if Manchester United’s Shinji Kagawa was put up against a team of nine players?

Shinji Kagawa has taken some stick at Manchester United this season but he’s always been viewed as one of the best ball players at the club, because his control in possession makes him difficult to tackle and mark.

Kagawa has done a Japanese advert selling some sort of beverage where the producers probably thought it would be funny to put him into a situation where it was literally nine against one on a five-a-side pitch.

Needless to say the quality of his opponents seems to be the ‘off the street’ calibre of footballer which allows Kagawa to show off exactly why United spent millions of pounds to sign him in the first place.

The whole video even has an air of FIFA 13 around it, suggesting Kagawa is some artificially controlled genius as he dances by the guys trying to stop him like they don’t exist.

It’s certainly good to watch and leaves you wondering just why he doesn’t start every single Manchester United game he’s involved with.

What do you make of his skills?
