Man Utd whizkid Angel Gomes confirms Nani family connection

Manchester United whizkid Angel Gomes has confirmed his family connection with Valencia ace Nani.

Gomes' father is also a former pro, winning the U20 World Cup with Portugal.

"I'm a Salford lad at heart," he told MUTV. "I love being from Salford. It's where I grew up so I always say that's where I'm from. My dad [Gil Gomes] played at the Under-23 World Cup and is well known in Portugal as they won it and he played with some great players as well. It's nice to be following in his footsteps really.

"Nani is my godfather. He's been amazing to me and gives me lots of advice. I am just lucky to have someone like that in my life. When I was younger, he used to be my idol. I used to watch him and even practice his backflips on the trampoline. I know I can't do that now!"
