Manchester United's Shinji Kagawa celebrated his 25th birthday on Monday in a fairly normal fashion: with a United-themed birthday cake with the Japanese crest on it. 

Oddly, he then tweeted out a shot with two of his friends alongside the cake, with the three of them having masks of Kagawa's face over their own.

It's certainly more Kagawa than most United fans are used to seeing on the pitch.
