The Japanese midfielder joined the Sint-Truident club in the Belgian league, a familiar destination for Asian players.

On the afternoon of January 10 (Hanoi time), the Sint-Truident Club homepage announced rookie Shinji Kagawa. The contract of the Japanese midfielder with the Belgian club will be announced after Kagawa undergoes a medical examination.

“Hello Sint-Truident fans. I decided to join STVV with great determination and want to help the club achieve its goals with skill and experience. I look forward to every day to play football in front of the fans. Thank you to everyone. all,” said Kagawa.

The unemployment period of the former MU and Dortmund midfielder ended after nearly a month. Kagawa’s nearest club is PAOK in Greece. The midfielder born in 1989 joined PAOK from January 2021 but only played 12 games for the Greek team before terminating his contract in mid-December 2021 because it was not in the coach’s plan.

Kagawa’s career declined after leaving MU to return to Dortmund in 2014. Kagawa did not keep his top form as before, despite his long-term commitment to the Signal Iduna Park team. The Japanese player left Dortmund to join Zaragoza in 2019 but was also unsuccessful and had his contract canceled after more than a year.

Kagawa’s new stop, Sint-Truiden Club is not an unfamiliar name. Arsenal defender Takehiro Tomiyasu used to play here. Striker Nguyen Cong Phuong also had a time with the Belgian club.

Sint-Truident is currently 13th in the Belgian league table.
