It’s a marriage striker Mohamed Buya Turay should remember. On July 22, the 27-year-old left Chinese team Henan Songshan Longmen and signed up for Sweden with the Malmö club. An agreement for his transfer had been found a few days earlier, and his new club had then asked him to join his teammates as soon as possible.
The concern for the Sierra Leonean is the date of his wedding ceremony, scheduled for July 21 in his country. Unable to be in two places at once, Turay asked his brother to take his place for his wedding to his girlfriend Suad Baydoun.
Photos taken before the ceremony
However, he posted three photos of him and his new wife on his social networks, but confirmed that these images were taken before July 21. The striker hasn’t been with his wife since they later got married but he wants to go on honeymoon before the end of the year.
“We got married on July 21 in Sierra Leoneexplained Turay to I‘Aftonbladetthe most read daily newspaper in Sweden. But I wasn’t there because Malmö asked me to come here earlier. We took the photos in advance. So it looks like I was there but I wasn’t. My brother had to represent me at the wedding himself. But I will try to take her to Sweden and Malmö now so that she is close to me. She lives here with me. »
The Sierra Leonean made his debut for Malmö in the Europa League on Thursday, coming off the bench in a clean win over Luxembourg’s Dudelange (3-0).
