Mohammed Anas: "I call my daughter my girlfriend"

23 March 2017 / Berenice Mulubah 

The footballer who mistakenly thanked his wife and girlfriend during his post- match interview has denied he's been unfaithful. 

Mohammed Anas appeared to dig himself into an even bigger hole when he said he was talking about his daughter in the now legendary interview.
"My family knows that I call my daughter my girlfriend. That's what I was talking about. I don't have a girlfriend," the Ghanaian striker said.
 
Anas who plays for South African team 'Free State Stars,' was named 'man of the match' after scoring two goals in the Star's draw against Ajax Cape Town.
 
His post-match interview started innocuously enough when he thanked God and his fans, but things took a decidedly awkward turn when he suddenly blurted out: "Thank you for this, I appreciate my fans. My wife and girlfriend...I mean my wife, sorry to say," he quickly added.

Viewers squirmed as Anas realized his blunder and started groveling to his wife: "I'm so sorry...I love you so much, I love you so much from my heart!"
Anas has now spoken out and said he has nothing to worry about from his wife of seven years.

"I love her so much. She's given me two beautiful children. She is fine. She knows what kind of man I am so I am not worried," he told the BBC.
"I'm famous now - people around the world know me," the footballer added.
Quite... but for all the wrong reasons...

C Liberia Clearly CEO calls on George Weah to take Arts and Culture seriously.
The Honorable George M. Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, I write to endorse your "Pro Poor" agenda. I fully

support your call "to ensured Liberians are not spectators in the
