The video which was reportedly recorded over 4 years ago showed Gomes testifying to being healed after he received prayer at TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).
“I’m from Manchester, my name is Angel Gomes and I play for the Manchester United Football Club. I’ve been struggling really with injuries; that’s why I’m here,” he said in the video.
The video has since generated lots of reactions on social media.
Reacting to the video via his twitter handle late on Monday, Gomes said he was “just practicing his faith”.
He said: “In regards to 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 were 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. ”
He further urged his fans to focus on other important issues in the world at the moment as he was young at the time.
“There are far more important issues out there in the world we can tackle,” his tweet added.
