Man Utd boss Ferguson: Right time to sign Kagawa

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is excited about what new signing Shinji Kagawa offers his team.

Kagawa has impressed in both of United's opening two games, which is reward for the work the club have put in identifying Kagawa as a key man in United's bid to win the title back.

Ferguson admitted it was his tremendous performance in winning the German Cup Final for Borussia Dortmund over Bayern Munich that convinced him to make his move.

He said: "We did a lot of work on Kagawa. Last season there was more authority in his game and his goalscoring was good from that position.

"I went to see him in the Final against Bayern and he was absolutely magnificent - his movement, awareness of a pass, awareness of space in front of him, he did everything.

"He was the sort of player we were looking for and that's why we moved."
