After the FA Cup final I’ll answer God’s call to become a pastor, says Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes

The intriguing next phase of Gomes’s life will play into the theme, though it was still rather striking to hear him say recently that he plans to be both an agent and a pastor when he stops playing.

The commencement of those careers is contingent on post-season discussions with Watford. Gomes says Watford is the only club he will play for at this stage and, to that end, Gracia wants to keep him for another season.

Still Gomes claims it is ‘very likely’ he will retire — and that raises the possibility of an imminent foray into a pair of worlds that do not often meet.

Gomes, an evangelical who worships at the Christian Community of London, says: ‘Some agents are very good and some are not. I am going to do the things that are right and good in God’s eyes. I know what players clubs in Europe are looking for and how I can help.

‘As a pastor, it is something more recent in my heart. I got a call from God and this is becoming more strong in my heart. God will tell me where I need to go and do it, probably in Brazil because I want to be home again, but I also want to be around the world doing it. I want to help people.

‘When God puts something in your heart, like he has for me with this, it is because the time is coming. It is the right time for me to do this. Religion has always been important for me, in my heart, in my life, but it has never been on my mind like it is at the moment. I know this is what I want to do for the next bit.’
