The video of him being prayed has emerged online bringing some comments with it.

In response to the video, that some people don’t understand and were asking many questions, the footballer said that he was practicing his faith.


“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 were asking me what the video was about.”

In the video, you can see the football talking about who he was and describing his healing experience; jogging, shaking his legs, showing he has no pain anymore.

 “My name is Angel Gomes, I’m from Manchester. I’m sixteen.”

“I’ve been having injuries around my hip and groin which have been affecting me playing. I also suffered an ankle injury not long ago which kept me out for a long time.”

“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 playing games, these injuries would happen quite frequently.

“I play for Man United, I also represent the England national team under-17 level as captain. I’ve known about the Synagogue Church of Nations for a long time.

“As my family follows TB Joshua the prophet, my parents are big fans and we always watch your videos. So we thought it would be a good time for me to come and be touched by the prophet.”


“Go with your heart and have faith”

The player finishes his testimony encouraging others to have faith by saying “Don’t doubt what you’re feeling inside. Go with your heart and have faith, and when you need someone to look up to look up to God, just have faith and be proud”.
