Soccer player thanks wife AND girlfriend in awkward live TV interview

A Ghanaian soccer star is in hot water after accidentally thanking his wife and his girlfriend during a live post-match interview on Friday.

Mohammed Anas, who plays for South Africa’s Free State Stars, had just been named man of the match and was thanking the most important people in his life when he made the very unfortunate blunder.

“I appreciate my fans also, my wife and my girlfriend,” the 22-year-old said before quickly realising his mistake.


“I mean my wife, sorry for saying, I’m so sorry, my wife,” he stuttered.

“I love you so much. I love you so much from my heart.”
