Borussia Dortmund hero Kagawa: I've nothing to prove to English fans

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Shinji Kagawa says he's happy to have left Manchester United. Kagawa is in the BVB squad for their Champions League tie with Arsenal.

"I had a feeling when I left Dortmund that it would not be a door that was shut forever," Kagawa said.

"I had a real ambition to play in England - but now I feel I am back where I belong.

"Being back with Dortmund feels like being back with family - and as a player there is no better feeling than that.

"I don't feel like I have anything to prove to the fans in England - but I know that in England they did not see the best of me.

"Already I am feeling that I am on the way back to the level I want to be.

"It will take time - but I am finally on the right path."
