Ask David Moyes why I'm not playing, says Shinji Kagawa

The 24-year-old was an instant hit at Old Trafford after being signed by Alex Ferguson in June last year, but he has cut a forlorn figure this season, left out of the squad altogether for United's 1-0 defeat at Liverpool before the international break.

Yokohama, Japan: Japan playmaker Shinji Kagawa voiced frustration at being sidelined by new Manchester United manager David Moyes after scoring a cracker in his country's 3-1 win over Ghana on Tuesday.

Twice the Bundesliga player of the year with Borussia Dortmund, Kagawa has played just seven minutes for English champions United this season, appearing as a substitute in the 2-0 Community Shield victory over Wigan on August 11.

"Please ask David Moyes why I'm not in the side," Kagawa told AFP after his equaliser provided the spark for Japan's comeback win in Yokohama.
