Ghanaian footballer, Mohammed Anas, who has gone viral on social media after thanking his wife and his girlfriend in a recent post-match interview, has denied having a girlfriend.
Anas, who plays for South Africa’s Free State Stars, told the BBC that he was in fact referring to his daughter.
"My family knows that I call my daughter my girlfriend. That’s what I was talking about. I don’t have a girlfriend," he said.
Anas says he is not bothered by the publicity the video has generated saying: "I’m famous now, even people around the world know me."
He added that he has been together with his wife, who is South African, for seven years.
