A footballer asks his brother to replace him on the wedding day because of a match

Mohamed Buya Turay, striker of the Swedish football club Malmo FC couldn’t attend his own wedding in Sierra Leone because of a game, so he asked his brother to fill in for him on the big day.

Last month, 26-year-old footballer Mohamed Buya Turay decided to quit the Chinese league and sign with a top Swedish club. Malmo CF. After announcing the deal on July 22, the club informed Toray that they expected him to join the squad as soon as possible to begin preparations for an important game. There was only one problem – the African striker had already planned his wedding, and there was no turning back. But he couldn’t make a bad first impression on his new club either, so he decided to do both. As his brother could not play football for him, Mohamed asked him to take his place at the wedding.

“We got married in Sierra Leone on July 21, but I wasn’t there because the Malmo The club asked me to come earlier,” Mohamed Buya Turay said in an op-ed for Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet. “We took the picture beforehand so it looks like I was there, but I wasn’t there, my brother had to take my place at the actual wedding.”

It looks like a joke, but there are pictures of Buya Turay’s brother and his wife, Souad Baydon, cutting the wedding cake together, and the footballer is nowhere to be found. The footballer posted three photos of himself with his new wife on social media, but confirmed they were taken before the wedding.

“I will try to move my wife to Sweden and Malmo now so that she is close to me,” the African footballer told reporters. She will live here with me.
