on a loan transfer from

explains his reasons for leaving Theater Of Dreams.

Angel Gomes

is now getting much more attention in Portugal and is much happier than before.

“It’s such a special club but I just wanted to be able to play and express myself,” he told The Independent.

“I was offered a great contract, I had all my family and friends around me, but I decided that I was willing to sacrifice that to pursue a different path. It’s hard to understand how difficult a decision that was.

“I’m still a United fan. I still watch every game now, whether it’s the first team or the U18s. I could have stayed and gone out on loan but it just felt like I needed a fresh start.”

He also talked about Luis Campos who convinced him to choose France.

 “We spoke for a couple of hours, he knew me inside-out as a player, and he showed me his plan. It was exactly what I needed to hear, In the first year, he wanted me to go to Boavista, it’d be a clean slate and I spoke to the manager there and loved his ideas.

“I didn’t see it as a step back, I saw it as my chance to kick on. I didn’t want to go somewhere and have that label of being a youngster. I wanted to play 90 minutes, have an important role, and show what I can do.”
