Watch: The Awkward Moment This 'Player' Thanks Wife And Girlfriend In Speech

Footballer Mohammer Anas thanked both his wife and girlfriend in his speech.

New Delhi: Ghanaian football player Mohammed Anas made a hilarious blunder in his man of the match speech on Friday. After playing a stellar game for his Free State Stars team in their 2-2 draw with Ajax Cape Town, he won man of the match - and then thanked both his wife and his girlfriend.

Realizing immediately that he had scored an 'own goal', the footballer tries to defuse the situation by hurriedly saying, "I'm sorry. I'm so sorry, my wife. I love you so much."

Watch the awkward moment below:
Netizens, however, were having none of it. Seizing up on his massive blunder and obvious cover-up attempt, they had a field day laughing at the many questions that were sure to come his way. Read some of the funniest reactions:
Mr Anas put an end to the interview by quickly saying, "Thanks for supporting me there is more to come." His awkward video, however, has gone viral, with one version receiving over 6,000 retweets.
