Footballer accidentally thanks both wife AND girlfriend in televised speech

Jesse Lingard goes with a Drake-inspired celebration, Mohammed Anas gives a revealing MOTM speech, and more in the Sweeper.

Ghanaian player Mohammed Anas really put his foot in it after a recent game when a slip of the tongue landed him in a whole heap of trouble.

While picking up his Man of the Match award, Free State Stars striker Anas took the time to thank both his wife and his girlfriend during his televised acceptance speech.

"Thank you for this, I appreciate my fans. My wife and my girlfriend... I mean my wife, sorry, I love you so much from my heart," blustered Anas as he desperately attempted to rectify his little blooper.

Awkward.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
