Remembering When A Footballer Thanked His Wife And Girlfriend In Post-Match Interview

Remembering When A Footballer Thanked His Wife And Girlfriend In Post-Match Interview

Interviews can go horribly wrong, but none of them even compare to this Ghanaian footballer who accidentally thanked the wrong person.

Last year, Mohammed Anas was better known for his slip of the tongue in a post-match interview than playing for South African top-flight side Free State Stars.

Just check out the below clip:


After his team drew 2-2 with Ajax Cape Town, the striker was named Man of The Match. He was so chuffed, he thanked his wife when he was talking to the camera.

But he also thanked his girlfriend.

Did he just admit he's cheating on his wife live on TV? Anas' speech is going to go down in history as the best thank you speech ever post-match.

And by best, I mean worst.


Anas got the Man of the Match because he scored twice on the pitch, but we had no idea that he'd scored twice off-pitch, too. It brings a new meaning to the term 'player'.

But he quickly denied his own claims, and explained that he calls his daughter 'girlfriend'.

"My family knows that I call my daughter my girlfriend. That's what I was talking about. I don't have a girlfriend," he told The BBC.

Anas was full of love and affection for his wife. "I love her so much. She's given me two beautiful children. She is fine. She knows what kind of man I am so I am not worried.

"I'm famous now - people around the world know me."


When it comes to TV and radio, it's so easy to mess up.

The important thing is that you recover quickly and move on. Anas realised immediately what he had said and tried to backtrack - although unsuccessfully.
