Manchester United player, Angel Gomes, has reacted to a viral video of him receiving healing at T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos State, Nigeria.
The video of the English player receiving healing at the church recently surfaced online.
Gomes in the video clip, revealed that he flew all the way from Manchester, England, because of persistent injuries.
The former United academy player has now reacted to the video on Twitter.
The United forward said he visited the clergyman in 2016 because of the challenges in his career as a footballer at the time.
He also said he “was just practicing his faith” as a Christian.
According to Gomes, his mother being a big fan of TB Joshua, urged him to visit his church for solution.
The player, however, described the digging out of the old video as unnecessary, saying there are more pressing issues in the world to tackle.
“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,” he wrote on Tuesday.
