Oops: Soccer player accidentally thanks wife AND girlfriend in live interview

Updated:

An African soccer player has some explaining to do after he happened to thank his wife, and girlfriend, in a post-match interview that has now gone viral.

South African Premier League player Mohammed Anas had just been awarded the Man of the Match title when he made the blunder on live TV, according to FOX Sports.

“I appreciate my fans also,” he said during the interview. “My wife and my girlfriend, I mean, yeah, sorry to say. I’m so sorry. I mean my wife. I love you so much.”

He tried to backtrack, but it appeared as though the damage had already been done.

So far there hasn't been a comment from Anas about the comment he made.
