Sierra Leonian footballer, Mohamed Buya Turay, missed his wedding to his fiancée, Suad Baydoun, on 21 July, 2022.
Instead, his brother represented him as the groom at his wedding.
Turay shared pictures of himself and his new wife on his social media pages but confirmed those images were taken prior to the actual event.
He said he hasn’t been with his wife since their wedding.
“We got married on July 21 in Sierra Leone,” Turay told Afton Bladet.
“But I wasn’t there because Malmö asked me to come here earlier.
“We took the pictures in advance. So it looks like I was there but I wasn’t. My brother had to represent me at the wedding itself.
“But I will try to get her to Sweden and Malmö now so she can be close to me. She will live here with me,” he added.
