Footballer Mohamed Buya Turay missed his own marriage to sign a contract with Sweden’s Malmo. In order for the festivities to take place, however, he had an unusual idea: he sent his brother in his place.
According to Turay, the luck was that he and his wife decided to take the wedding photos before the festivities. He was announced by the club on the 22nd of July and the ceremony took place the day before, with his brother representing him.
“We got married on the 21st of July in Sierra Leone, but I wasn’t there because Malmo asked me to come earlier. We took the pictures beforehand, so it looks like I was there, but I wasn’t. My brother had to represent at the wedding itself”, the player told the Swedish newspaper Afton Bladet.
Due to professional commitments, the player has not even been able to find his wife until now.
“I will try to bring her to Sweden so she can be close to me. She will live here with me. First we have to win the championship and then I go on my honeymoon,” he said.
