Manchester United (England) announced earlier this month that an agreement had been reached with Borussia Dortmund (Germany) for the transfer of talented Japanese midfielder Shinji Kagawa.
I was impressed when I read that the club offered him the Number 7 shirt which was made famous by the likes of Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and was worn by Michael Owen last season but the midfielder turned down the offer as he wants to prove himself before taking such honour.
This proves that this young man is just out to play the football game we all love and would rather humbly grow into such a stature.

He was quoted as saying “I’ve just joined the team and haven’t accomplished anything yet. I want to make a name for myself at United on my own terms”. He further stated that it is an exciting time for him and he can’t wait to meet his team and start playing.
Go on Shinji!!! We can’t wait for you to wear your preferred shirt number (even if you later choose the number 7 shirt) and take on the Premier League with your exceptional talent and humility.
