Manchester United midfielder Ji-Sung Park believes that Shinji Kagawa will become a huge success at Old Trafford.
The South Korean, who became a national icon after moving to the Red Devils from PSV Eindhoven, is expecting the former Borussia Dortmund man to enjoy a similar limelight in his native Japan because of the move.
And the 31-year-old is confident Kagawa can deal with the pressures at home and abroad to become a star at United.
“I know United have agreed a deal for Kagawa and I’m happy because we’re signing a good player,” Park told ManUtd.kr at an event hosted by his JS Foundation.
“Manchester United is a huge club and every season we sign new, world-class names.
“I hope Kagawa shows how good he is next season and I think he will do.”
While the South Korean international knows that he will have to compete with Kagawa for a regular starting spot, he is only concentrating on pre-season preparations.
“There is a lot of competition in the squad but it doesn’t matter who I’m competing with,” he said.
“We’re a team and I just want to concentrate on producing better performances.
“We’re starting our pre-season tour next month and those matches will help me to prepare for the new season.
“As always, when I begin a new season I am determined to improve.”
