SHINJI KAGAWA MISSED Man United’s loss to Newcastle yesterday after suffering an unfortunate illness.

And manager David Moyes revealed that the star was ostensibly ruled out for a rather unusual reason — excessive eating.

“Shinji was very sick after the [Everton] game and he did a bit of training on Friday but he was low,” Moyes told reporters.

“All of the stats that we look at were low so we felt we had better not take a risk in case we got an injury by playing him.

“It was a bad sickness. He thinks he ate too much and he had to get his stomach pumped but I think he is okay.”
