- Buya Turay was not physically present at his wedding as the new Malmo FC star sent his brother instead
- The Sierra Leonean striker signed for the Swedish club on July 22, but his wedding was scheduled for July 21.
- With Malmo forcing all players to return to the club ahead of the new season, Turay was unable to attend his own wedding ceremony.
Sierra Leonean star Mohamed Buya Turay has reportedly missed his own wedding after Swedish club Malmö asked him to join the team early.
After stints with Chinese Super League sides 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 traveled to the city, but his wedding ceremony in Sierra Leone is believed 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 the same time, Turay had to have his brother take his place for the marriage with his girlfriend Suad Baydoun.

The Sierra Leone star later posted photos of him and his wife on social media, but said the images were taken earlier.
He said 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 take her to Sweden and Malmö now so that she is close to me. She will live here with me.”
“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.”
He wrote on social media:
“I married my darling, my wife and my best friend today!!! What an amazing human being!!! And what a blessing!!! Mrs. SBT Suad BaydoUN
