A footballer skipped his own wedding to complete a transfer to a new team. Mohamed Buya Turay, a Malmo star, was not present on his big day because he was signing a different type of contract. After spending time in China, the Sierra Leone international joined Malmo this summer.
And Malmo were so eager for the 27-year-old to join the squad that they forced him to miss his own wedding. Turay, on the other hand, made sure bride Suad Baydoun wasn’t alone… by sending his BROTHER to take his place. Turay’s wedding took place a day earlier, without the groom, and the forward was unveiled as a Malmo player on July 22.
Luckily the happy couple had cleverly taken wedding photos before the star was forced to jet to Sweden.
Turay hilariously told Swedish outlet Afton Bladet: “We got married on July 21 in Sierra Leone.
“But I wasn’t there because Malmo asked me to come here earlier.
“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.”
Turay admitted that he still hasn’t been reunited with his now wife.
He continued: “I will try to get her to Sweden and Malmo now so she can be close to me. She will live here with me.”
The forward is now hoping he will be around to make it on the plane for his honeymoon.
But he is eyeing a league title triumph beforehand.
Turay concluded: “First we have to win the league and then I go on my honeymoon.”
The forward made his Malmo debut in the Europa League Qualifying stages in midweek.
