Free State Stars striker Mohammed Anas must have been feeling pretty good after scoring two goals, good enough to be awarded "man of the match", in a 2-2 draw against Ajax Cape Town.
But after the game ended and a microphone appeared before his face, he slipped.
"Thank you for this, I appreciate my fans. My wife and girlfriend...I mean my wife, sorry to say," Anas said.
He wisely tried to patch up the blunder.
"I'm so sorry...I love you so much, I love you so much from my heart!" he said, addressing presumably just his wife.
