A South African based footballer has excited social media users for paying tribute to “his wife and girlfriend” for their support during a TV interview.

Free State Stars midfielder Mohammed Anas made the “confession” immediately after being voted man of the match in a league match against Ajax Cape Town.

Anas scored twice for his team during the match that ended in a 2-2 draw.

WIFE AND GIRLFRIEND

“I appreciate my fans, and my wife and my girlfriend,” the player said before quickly correcting himself “… I mean my wife… I’m sorry to say, my wife.”

The African man is generally considered polygamous, even though public admissions of the same as Anas did are always frowned upon.

If he really is married and he is cheating on his wife, the Ghanaian midfielder who joined Free State Stars in January, should be prepared to answer some tough questions when he gets home.
