Mohammed Anas, who plays for South African side Free State Stars, scored twice in the game... and apparently off the pitch
Ghanaian footballer Mohammed Anas made a hilarious blunder in what is being called 'the greatest man of the match speech of all time.'
Anas earned the award after putting in a stellar performance for his Free State Stars team in their 2-2 draw with Ajax Cape Town on Friday evening.
After bagging the man of the match award with a standout two-goal display, Anas began his obligatory post-match interview with a revealing slip of the tongue.
It all started perfectly innocently as he thanks his fans and wife… before also thanking his GIRLFRIEND.
Immediately after the clearly-accidental slip of the mind – and tongue – Anas backtracks in the most grovelling of ways, repeating over and over again how much he loves his wife.
He said: “Thank you for this, I appreciate my fans. My wife and my girlfriend… I mean my wife, sorry. Liezel I love you so much, Aya I love you so much from my heart,”
