Beleaguered Ghanaian footballer Mohammed Anas has decided to look to the bright side, following his famous post-match interview faux pas on Friday.

The 22-year-old, who plays for South African side Free State Stars, saw his video go viral after bizarrely thanking both his wife and his girlfriend, having being adjudged Man of the Match of the league clash with Ajax Cape Town.

The striker scored twice in the 2-2 draw.

"I'm famous now - people around the world know me," Anas explained, as reported by The Mirror.

"My family knows that I call my daughter my girlfriend. That's what I was talking about. I don't have a girlfriend.

"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."

Anas was previously on the books of Maritzburg United.

"Thank you very much for giving me this," Anas said in the famous speech.
