“We got married on July 21 in Sierra Leone, but I wasn’t there because my team, Malmö, asked me to arrive earlier,” said the Aftonbladet the 27-year-old center forward for the Swedish newspaper.
Turay has uploaded several photos on his social media page in which he can be seen by his wife’s side in a wedding dress.
We took the pictures before. It seems like I was there, but I wasn’t. My brother represented me at the wedding
said the 11-time Sierra Leone national football player.
Mohamed Buya Turay moved to Sweden in 2013 at the age of 18, where he became top scorer with 15 goals in 2019 as a player for Djurgarden. Later, he played in Belgium, and then also served in the Legion in China. Malmö FF signed him on July 22, but he was not named for the Swedish club’s league match against Sirius the following day, and for the following week’s Champions League qualifier against Zalgiris. Finally, on Thursday, August 4, he came on as a substitute in a 3–0 Europa League qualifier win against F91 Dudelange from Luxembourg and played ten minutes.
The attacker has not met his wife since the marriage, but according to his promise, the honeymoon will not be missed.
“First of all, we win the championship, then the honeymoon can come,” Turay said.
