Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Shinji Kagawa's performance for Dortmund

Former Manchester United player Shinji Kagawa was in action for Borussia Dortmund against Liverpool.

Shinji Kagawa was a played for who there were high hopes at Manchester United when he signed in 2012.

The Japanese international did win the Premier League with the Red Devils in his first season, but did not nail down a regular place in the starting XI, and only made a bit-part contribution towards that success.

The next season was David Moyes' first in charge, and he was unable to kick on, as the team's form dipped dramatically.

He was then sold during Louis van Gaal's second month as manager, returning to former club Borussia Dortmund.

Kagawa has been back on form this season, scoring seven times and providing six assists in the Bundesliga. Last night he was in action against United's Premier League rivals Liverpool.

Despite his best efforts he ended up on the losing side, with his old manager Jurgen Klopp leading Liverpool to a 5-4 aggregate win at Anfield.

Kagawa featured for 77 minutes, taken off shortly before Mamadou Sakho scored an equaliser.

He had two shots on target during the match, completing 90 per cent of his passes, while also contributing defensively, making three tackles and four clearances.

United fans were impressed with his display, and took to Twitter to wonder where it all went wrong for him at United...
