Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has revealed he failed in an attempt to bring Shinji Kagawa back from Manchester United.

The Japan international endured a frustrating first season at Old Trafford, struggling to hold down a regular place in the United side due to injuries.

"This is not an issue for him this year, not even for us," Klopp told Sky Deutschland.

"It was clear relatively quickly, Shinji wants to prevail this year at Manchester United. I did not expect a different answer, you just have to ask even once."
