Shinji Kagawa is ready to fight for his place at Manchester United.

Accepting competition for places goes with the territory at Old Trafford, Kagawa, who started 17 times during the successful league campaign, realises it will again be a challenge to pin down a place under David Moyes but the attacking midfielder is aiming to impress his new boss.

"Last year, I knew there would be a lot of competition within the team for me to be in the starting line-up," he explained. "I knew it's a big club and it would happen.

"I really need to show results and there are so many things I have to do like work hard every day. I will be playing in my home country tomorrow and I want to focus on the game to be able to perform at my best."
