Mohamed Buya Turay skipped his own wedding date to finalize a new football deal.
His 27-year-old forward from Sierra Leone, Turay, moved from the Chinese team to Sweden's Malmö last month and had to skip a wedding to seal a deal.
He had a nifty hack to not think this meant he chose football over saying goodbye to his death.
"We got married July 21st in Sierra Leone," Turay said to Swedish media Afton Bladet explained to }translated by the sun. "But I wasn't there because Malmö asked me to come here early." I also explained some nifty tricks to make it look like he was at the wedding when he wasn't.
"I took pictures beforehand," he said. "So it looks like I was there, but I wasn't. My brother had to represent me at the wedding itself."
He is trying to get his wife to join him in Europe.
"I'm going to take her to Sweden and Malmö right now so she can be near me," he said of his goals. "She will live here with me."
Honeymoon? It also has to be deferred due to football considerations.
"First we have to win the league, then we go on our honeymoon," he said.
