Shinji Kagawa had a health scare the other week when an ambulance was called to his house for reported breathing problems.
David Moyes cleared the situation up when Kagawa was absent from the game against Newcastle by stating that he had simply eaten too much and had to have his stomach pumped.
However, Kagawa has told the Japanese media that this was not the case.
“I didn’t have a cold. I didn’t vomit at all,” he said according to UWS.
“And it is not true for me to eat too much. I just didn’t feel well and it was not serious.”
I slammed Kagawa for this as a professional footballer should never miss a match for eating too much, so I take back what I said if it was just a case of feeling unwell.
Why would Moyes say that he had his stomach pumped rather than simply stating he wasn’t fit to play because he was unwell? If that was the case, it is a cover up that needn’t have been one. If Kagawa was just unwell, he may as well have told the media what was really going on rather than making it out to seem worse than it was.
