A Ghanaian soccer star may be in the popper after giving an awkward live TV interview where he mistakenly thanked his wife and girlfriend at the same time.
Mohammed Anas, who plays for South Africa’s Free State Stars, had just been named “man of the match” when he made the Freudian slip of the tongue during a post-game interview Friday night.
“Firstly I appreciate my fans,” Mohammed Anas began, “and my wife and my girlfriend.”
Within seconds of catching his mistake, he quickly backtracked with some nervous-sounding laughter.
“I mean my wife, sorry for saying, I’m so sorry, my wife,” he said. “I love you so much. I love you so much from my heart.”
It is already too late man! Any amount of love can’t save you now from the wraith.
As always Twitter responded:
Two goals, two girls. Mohammed Anas 😂🤙🏽
