Footballer thanks wife and girlfriend during post-match interview

JOHANNESBURG – Free State Stars striker Mohammed Anas made a hilarious blunder in his post-match interview in what has been labelled the best man-of-the-match speech.

After scoring two goals for his team in the 2-2 draw against Ajax Cape Town, making him man of the match, Anas began his post-match interview by thanking God for his best performance.

Just after thanking his fans, things took an interesting turn when he, in the same sentence, thanked his "wife and girlfriend".

Receiving his man-of-the-match award he said, “Thank you for this, I appreciate my fans. My wife and my girlfriend… I mean my wife, sorry.”

He quickly realised his mistake, and moved swiftly to explain that he meant the former.

He appeared somehow embarrassed and couldn't solidly construct a sentence to finish his interview after this blunder.
