Manchester United’s Shinji Kagawa suffers fake broken leg on international duty
Shinji Kagawa is trending on Twitter after suffering a fake broken leg playing for Japan.
A false rumour that the new Manchester United player was facing six months on the sidelines spread around the social networking site, sparking panic among United fans.
Anyone doing a quick check on the progress of Japan’s match against UAE would have seen that he had indeed been subbed off, which initially added weight to the rumours. But rather than his leg, it was the ex-Borussia Dortmund man’s pride that had taken a battering.
Coach Alberto Zaccheroni hauled off his star after getting fed up of his persistent stepovers, the final of which involved him tripping up and landing in a heap on the pitch.
