- TS Galaxy has released 26-year-old Mohammed Anas over complaints by fellow players that he was the reason for the string of losses at the club in the recent past
- According to them, he not only carries bad luck but had also transferred it to the rest of the players as they are trying their best but the results are not coming
- They added that every South African club the Ghanaian has played for was either relegated or survived relegation by a whisker
Footballer Mohammed Anas has been dropped by TS Galaxy following a series of complaints that he had brought bad luck to the club.
The South African reports that some of the Galaxy players expressed concern that the 26-year-old did not only carry bad luck but had also transferred it to the entire team.
This is after the club suffered a string of unimpressive results on the pitch, with the players indicating that they were giving their all but the results are not coming.
“Every team he’s played for here (in South Africa) has either dodged relegation by a whisker or got relegated. He was at Maritzburg and they merely survived relegation that season. He was at Free State Stars when they were relegated and the same happened at Polokwane City," said one of the players.
The club quietly released Anas last week in arguably the most bizarre reason to let go of a player in football history.
Anas once thanked wife and girlfriend in live interview
Anas went viral four years ago when a video emerged of him accidentally thanking his wife and 'girlfriend' in a post-match interview.
“Thank you for this, I appreciate my fans, my wife and my girlfriend… I mean my wife, sorry,” he said.
The slip of the tongue happened during an interview after the player was named man of the match for scoring a brace.
He denied allegations of cheating on his wife despite the hilarious blunder that seemed to expose his womanising ways.
Galaxy still lost
Even after releasing the player, Galaxy was beaten 2-1 by SuperSport United over the weekend in an away match played at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
The match started well for them by taking the lead in the 63rd minute courtesy of Mthobisi Mngomezulu's goal.
It was a victory they could not sustain to the end as goals from Supersport's Thamsanqa Gabuza and Sipho Mbule saw them succumb to another defeat.
