CAPE TOWN - A local footballer has become an internet sensation after scoring twice - both on the field and off.
Free State Stars striker, Mohammed Anas, earned the man of the match award after bagging a double in a PSL match against Ajax Cape Town at Athlone Stadium on Friday night.
But the “player” quickly went from hero to zero during a hilarious post-match interview.
After his heroics in the 2-2 draw, a blundering Anas first thanked God for his performance and then his wife - AND then his girlfriend.
Speaking to SuperSport anchor Kamohelo Thabiso Mbatha while accepting his award, Anas says: “Thank you for this, I appreciate my fans. My wife and my girlfriend I mean my wife, sorry.”

He quickly realises his own mistake, and tries to make up for it by saying: “I love you so much."
After that, the player is so embarrassed, he can’t really string two words together.
Let’s hope his wife - or girlfriend or whatever - forgives the footballer for putting his foot in it.
Meanwhile, the Stars player is a Twitter superstar, with amused users like Gary Al-Smith tweeting: “Mohammed Anas just gave the greatest MoTM speech of all time, thanking both wife and girlfriend.”
Good morning to Mohammed Anas, his wife and his girlfriend.
Have you guys found out if Mohammed Anas is emotionally okay after last night's post match interview?😂😂🤣🤣
