A soccer player has gone viral not for his athleticism on the field, but for his post-game interview in which he thanked his wife for her support, and accidentally also gave a shout out to his girlfriend, which we’re assuming his wife had no idea existed.
South African player Mohammed Anas played in a free State/Cape match Friday (March 18) and scored two goals. After the win, Anas conducted an interview in which he–like any good spouse-publicly thanked his wife for supporting his career, and without thinking did the same for his girlfriend.

Realizing he royally screwed up, Ans tried to double back mid-interview but the damage had already been.
“I appreciate my wife and my girlfriend,” he said, before trying to backtrack quickly. “Sorry to say, I’m so sorry, my wife! I love you so much. I love you so much from my heart.”
Yeah, no, sir. That’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works.
