A video of a South African soccer player went viral over the weekend, following an after-match interview in which he mistakenly thanked his wife AND girlfriend for their support

Free State Stars’ Mohammed Anas won ‘Man of the Match’ for his two goals against Ajax in the match this weekend. The event took place in Cape Town.

Following the match, he was interviewed by the media, during which he stated: “Firstly I appreciate my fans, and my wife and my girlfriend.”

Realising his epic mistake, Anas stumbled over his words, mumbling an apology to his wife. “I’m so sorry, my wife! I love you so much from my heart.”

Anas may have scored two goals in the game, but he’s going to have to work pretty hard to make up for the epic gaffe – and he may have some explaining to do when he goes home to his wife (or his girlfriend)…
