Footballer wins 'Man of the Match', then thanks both 'wife and girlfriend'

A Ghanaian footballer committed a hilarious blunder as he accepted his ‘man of the match’ award after a good performance for his South African club, Free State Stars.

Named the player of the game, Mohammed Anas’ post-match interview began thus:

“Firstly I appreciate my fans. (And) my wife and my girlfriend.”

He soon realised his blunder and attempted some damage control.

“I’m so sorry, my wife!” he exclaimed. “I love you so much from my heart. Thanks for supporting me. There is more to come.”

It was not reported how Anas’ wife received the comments.
