Shinji Kagawa was not in Manchester United's squad for their 1-0 loss to Newcastle on Saturday. This wasn't an entirely unusual occurrence, but the reason for his absence was: he ate too much. It remains unclear exactly which delectable foodstuff Kagawa simply could not resist, though. Maybe stuffed crust pizza.
Manager David Moyes told the club's official website:
"Shinji was very sick after the [Everton] game and he did a bit of training on Friday but he was low,” Moyes explained. "All of the stats that we look at were low so we felt we had better not take a risk in case we got an injury by playing him."
Revealing more about Kagawa's health, as well as Fellaini and Smalling, the boss continued: "It was a bad sickness. He thinks he ate too much, and he had to get his stomach pumped, but I think he is okay."
