Shinji Kagawa might not have been part of the squad today to face Newcastle United but it didn’t stop him from taking part in the warm up.

Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed that he is now taking part in training again and is not too far away from a return to the first team squad.

The Japanese star has been injured since damaging his knee against Braga in the UEFA Champions League and Manchester United have missed him in his absence.

He settled down very quickly at the start of the season and was warming his way into the team with every appearance. The sooner he comes back the better. We have yet to see what the fully fit combination of Kagawa, Rooney and van Persie starting for United and given our goalscoring exploits already, it could really take us to the next level.
