[Chong’s teammate Angel Gomes’ future is currently up in the air with the teenager’s contract ending in the summer] I remember just warming up, Mourinho was shouting at me and I was just daydreaming staring at the fans, stretching. It wasn’t until a steward was like ‘Angel’ and I looked back and he was like ‘the manager’ and I was like ‘oh, I’m actually gonna come on’. I just remember Rooney walking off and I was just like ‘whoa’

[Man Utd and Angel Gomes contract negotiations at a standstill] I’ve seen it over the years, coming up from the academy and being at United my whole career. It’s what I want to go on to do - win trophies for the club

The boys (Chong and Gomes) have got a great attitude. They’re absolutely top-class boys and we’re doing what we can to keep them because in a few years we can see them becoming very, very good players

[Angel Gomes could still leave his mark at Manchester United but time is running out] I’ve still got massive hopes for him. He’s got a contract dispute at the minute, which all players have, and I don’t get involved in that. That’s what he does with his agent and the club. That’s personal. The boy trains every day and works hard. His work ethic, the way he approaches training every day, and the way he approaches games whether he’s playing for the reserve team, U19s, first team, is spot on. His talent is unbelievable. Angel has to get the right niche at the right time. If it all comes together then we’ve got one hell of a player on our hands

[Manchester United starlet Angel Gomes has sought to model his game on Cristiano Ronaldo and Andres Iniesta, with Ronaldinho, Carlos Tevez, Robinho and Nani also providing inspiration for the promising winger] In terms of who I model parts of my game on, I’d say Iniesta. He was always one of my idols. [He was] a big player I watched while growing up. [He played] in similar positions as me and I’ve always tried modelling my game on Iniesta. In terms of footballers when I was young it was always Ronaldinho, the Brazilian players, Robinho and Cristiano Ronaldo at the time. I remember the Joga Bonito stuff with the freestyling and stuff like that. As a youngster, all you wanted to do was practise skills, so I’d say players like Ronaldo [were my inspiration]. I had an uncle, we used to go to his house. We’d sit and watch videos and he was quite old-school, so he’d show me players like [Diego] Maradona [and Juan Roman] Riquelme. I watched Thierry Henry growing up as well. Then obviously, when I was growing up at United, Nani had a big influence on me and when I was around eight years old, when I used to go and watch, it was that time when we had a great season and [we had] Ronaldo and [Carlos] Tevez. All those players inspired me when I was growing up.

[Video shows Man Utd teenager Angel Gomes visiting prophet in Nigeria in attempt to heal his injury woes] I play for Manchester United Football Club. And I’ve been struggling really with injuries. 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 would come 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 the prophet, my parents are big fans. So we thought it would be a good time for me to come and be touched by the prophet

Regarding the video that has come out from 2016. I am from a Christian family and 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 practising 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. There are far more important issues out there in the world we can tackle
