Manchester United youngster explains visit to T.B Joshua

Manchester United starlet, Angel Gomes, has urged people to concentrate on ‘more important issues’ after a video of his visit to Pastor T. B Joshua, who claims to have healing powers resurfaced on social media, reports

Gomes’ future has been the subject of widespread speculation, with his contract due to expire at the end of the month, but the 19-year-old has made headlines for a very different reason this week.

Back in 2016, Gomes made a trip to see the renowned Nigerian pastor at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations in Lagos and footage of his experience began doing the rounds on Monday evening.

In one of the clips, the England youth international, then aged just 16, explained that persistent injury problems were the reason for his visit.

I’ve been struggling with injuries. I was having injuries around my hip and groin which were affecting me playing and I also suffered an ankle injury which was affecting me playing and kept me out for a long time,’ he said in the video.

“These injuries were coming at hard times for me, times when I was having a breakthrough or times when I had to go to a tournament or play in games. These injuries would happen quite frequently.”

Yesterday morning, Gomes addressed the reaction to the videos and admitted the footage might look ‘crazy’ but stressed that he should be able to practice his faith however he wishes.

“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,” Gomes tweeted.

“I was going through some issues. From the outside looking in, it looks crazy, but I was just practicing my faith.”

He added: “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.”

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright showed his support for Gomes as he responded to the youngster’s explanation.

“Absolutely none of their business [love heart emoji],” Wright replied.

Gomes became the youngest player to make a first-team appearance for the Red Devils since Duncan Edwards when he debuted against Crystal Palace back in May 2017.

But Gomes’ opportunities have been limited since then and the teenager has played just six times for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this term.

Barcelona and Chelsea have both been heavily linked with Gomes in recent weeks, with the England Under-20 international set to become a free agent this summer.

Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, has kicked against the Premier League being voided, as it would deny Liverpool the title.

The corona-virus pandemic has put English football on a lock-down, and has led to suggestions that the current campaign could be scrapped, with time running out to complete it.

The Athletic reports that Woodward is not in support of the season being voided, stating that it would not be “very fair”.
Liverpool have a 25-point gap at the top of the table and look set to end their 30-year wait for a league title.

United themselves can still qualify for the Champions League following an impressive unbeaten run.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s mum, Dolores Aveiro, has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and is currently fighting for her life.

The 64-year-old mother of four, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, and underwent surgery and radio therapy.

Ahead of a trip to Italy today to celebrate her footballer son’s 35th birthday after backing him in his fight against rape claims, Dolores Aveiro admitted to new health problems.

She told a Portuguese TV station in a interview:

“I was operated on another breast in Madrid, I’ve had radiotherapy and now I’m fighting for my life.”

The shock confession came after she attacked Cristiano’s rape accuser Kathryn Mayorga over her claims she was raped in a Las Vegas hotel by saying:

“I have confidence in my son when it comes to what happened. When she went there, it wasn’t to play cards. It was to do something.

“I know the son I have.”

In 2009 Ronaldo donated £100,000 to build a cancer centre at the hospital that saved his mum’s life.

He made the generous gift to the Portuguese League Against Cancer in his native Madeira so it could be used to build a centre in the Hospital Central.
