Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa says he's struck up a friendship with Anderson.

Kagawa joined United from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

He told "Players from South America such as Anderson and Antonio (Valencia) often strike up friendly conversations with me, which is a big help. Anderson asked me to teach him some Japanese.

"I taught him ore kakkoii ("I am cool" or "I am handsome"). It is nice to see everyone seems to be interested in Japan."
