[Source] – A FOOTBALLER missed his wedding day in order to finalize a transfer to a new team. Malmo star Mohamed Buya Turay wasn’t there on his big day as he agreed to a different type of contract instead.
And Malmö were so keen on the 27-year-old joining the team as soon as possible that it made him miss his own wedding. Although Turay made sure the bride Suad Baydoun wasn’t alone…by sending her BROTHER to take her place instead.
Turay hilariously told Swedish media Afton Bladet: “We got married on July 21 in Sierra Leone.
“But I wasn’t there because Malmö asked me to come here earlier.
“We took the photos ahead of time. So it looks like I was there but I wasn’t. My brother had to represent me at the wedding himself.”
What a gesture! I have nothing but respect for that. Take a few photos ahead of time so everyone thinks everything is fine, then just send your brother over for the boring part of the ceremony. In fact, if he had understood it, he should have made the reception and then sent his brother for the ceremony and some photos. Photos are by far the worst part of a wedding, whether it’s yours or not. Nobody likes to take pictures.
I need to know how the whole conversation went. Clearly, she doesn’t have a problem with that because, you know, the salary and all that is pretty important. It’s still a dangerous game. What if the priest slips up and says you can kiss the bride? You can’t just sit and not listen to a priest, which means your brother plants one on your wife. No thanks. Also, the brother who is the substitute groom had better ask for some sort of monetary payment. You can’t pretend to be a groom without benefits. What’s the point?
And the worst ? Clem and I can both tell you from experience. Missing Shout at your own wedding. Just heartbreaking when you hear it. Clem was in the bathroom, I was stuck taking a picture. Talk about bad breaks all around.
What a gesture.
