Japan international Shinji Kagawa has extended his contract with Borussia Dortmund until 2020, the Bundesliga club has announced.
The 28-year-old midfielder first joined Dortmund from Cerezo Osaka in 2010 and, after a two-year stint at Manchester United, returned to Dortmund in 2014.
“BVB, with its unbelievable fans, has really grown very dear to me,” Kagawa said in a statement on the club website.
“I am very glad that I will remain a part of this incredible club in one of the best leagues in the world with the highest viewing figures.”
Kagawa has scored 36 goals from 127 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund, contributing 33 assists for the side.
He has won two Bundesliga titles and two German Cups, including last season’s 2-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.
“We are really happy that Shinji will continue to play for us in the coming three years,” Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said.
“And as one of the more experienced members of the squad, he is an unbelievably important anchor in a team which is very youthful overall.”
Dortmund finished third in the Bundesliga last season, 18 points behind title winners Bayern Munich, earning them direct entry into the Champions League group stage.
Kagawa, who dislocated his shoulder last month during a World Cup qualifier, did not feature in his side’s 3-2 win over Japan’s Urawa on their Far East pre-season tour on Saturday,
“I really wanted to get on but we came here to win so it’s nice to get the result,” said the former Manchester United midfielder.
“It’s a new start for us so we all need to do is pull together and work hard for the new coach.”Euro Soccer Bonus
