The media is falling apart as Ghanaian footballer Mohammed Anas, who won the man of the match in a recent match, committed a major error in an exclusive interview when he thanked his wife and girlfriend at the same time.
Following his two goals score for his team – South African Premier Division match, Free State Stars, in the 2-2 with Ajax Cape Town – Anas, during an interview with Super Sports host, said:
Thank you for this, I appreciate my fans, my wife and my girlfriend.
Realizing his slip of tongue, the 22-year old Ghanaian striker backtracked in the most grovelling of ways, repeating over and over again how much he loves his wife, saying:
I mean my wife! Sorry to say, I’m so sorry, my wife.
I love you so much. I love you so much from my heart.
Twitter users had made a caricature of what they considered the most hilarious blunder.
Lord have mercy!
Two goals, two girls. Mohammed Anas 😂🤙🏽
