England and Manchester United star, Angel Gomes, has addressed a viral video of his visit to T.B Joshua’s Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos for healing four years ago.
On Monday, the video of the 19-year-old attacking midfielder at the church went viral on Twitter.
Gomes, who spoke in front of the congregation in the video, revealed how injuries have been affecting his playing.
He further stated they came at hard times for him, times when he was having a breakthrough or times when he had to go to a tournament.
Reacting to the video, Gomez, who says he’s from a Christian family, explained that it was his mom who brought him to Nigeria to visit T.B Joshua’s church for healing as he was going through some issues at that time.
He wrote on Twitter: “Regarding the video that has come out from 2016. I am from a Christian family at the time my mum was a fan of the pastor, and she really wanted me to go.”
“I was going through some issues. From the outside looking in it looks crazy, but I was just practicing my faith.”
”I didn’t really need to explain myself but a lot of people was asking me what the video was about. I was young at the time and if my parents thought something was best for Me I would do it. There are far more important issues out there in the world we can tackle.”
