Full highlights of Shinji Kagawa sitting on the bench (Yokohama 3-2 Manchester United)
It’s not unusual for a YouTube user to make a six-minute video of a player’s individual highlights from the TV coverage of a match.
It is a bit more unusual to be able to do that with footage of said player sitting on the bench. But that’s exactly what someone has done with the array of shots of Shinji Kagawa’s bench-warming during Manchester United’s defeat to Yokohama F. Marinos on Tuesday.
MUTV commentator Stewart Gardner reckons the Japanese TV director had shown 42 shots of Kagawa before he was even on the pitch.
The hilarity of the situation was not lost on Gardner as he attempted to commentate on a match which the host broadcaster seemed to have little interest in showing.
