Drama As Sierra Leone Football Star Mohamed Buya Turay Misses His Own Wedding, Sends His Brother Instead

  • Buya Turay was not physically present at his wedding as the newly signed Malmo FC star sent his brother instead
  • The Sierra Leonean striker signed for the Swedish club on July 22, but his wedding was slated for July 21
  • With Malmo mandating all players to return to the club ahead of the new season, Turay could not attend his own wedding ceremony

Sierra Leonean star Mohamed Buya Turay was said to have missed his own wedding after Swedish club Malmo requested he joined the squad earlier.

After spells with Chinese Super League outfits Hebei China Fortune and Henan Songshan Longen, the 27-year-old decided to move to Sweden.

Malmo completed his transfer on July 22 as he travelled to the city, but his wedding ceremony in Sierra Leone was said to have taken place on July 21.

His new club needed him to join his teammates; and as he could not be in two places at once, Turay had to get his brother to take his place for the wedding to his girlfriend Suad Baydoun.

The Sierra Leone star later posted pictures of himself and his bride on social media but stated that the images were taken earlier.

He told SPORTbible:

"We got married on July 21 in Sierra Leone. But I wasn't there because Malmö asked me to come here earlier.
"But I will try to get her to Sweden and Malmö now so she can be close to me. She will live here with me."
“We took the pictures in advance. So it looks like I was there but I wasn't. My brother had to represent me at the wedding itself."

He wrote on social media:

“I married my sweetheart, wife and my Best friend today!!! What an amazing human being!!! And What a blessing!!! Mrs SBT Suad Baydoun
