Sierra Leonean forward Mohammed Buya Turay has threatened to take his former Swedish football club AFC Ekilstuna to court for failing to make payments of about 2 million Swedish Crowns ($220,000) to his mother club in Sierra Leone.

An upset Turay told fotbolldirekt.se that “It is criminal of the AFC. I will take this to court.

“The AFC hasn’t given a penny to my club at home in Sierra Leone, but they have to do it! Mattia and AFC had an agreement, but when I was sold this summer, the AFC did not want to pay the money. This is so bad, it’s criminal you know … It’s criminal of AFC, they can’t do this! When I was in AFC I did my best and I paid back, so why don’t they want to give some money to the club that brought me up? What kind of crime is this? For yes, this is a type of crime.”

Turay, who recently joined Swedish premiership side Djurgarden, said that when he moved to Ekilstuna in 2015 it was agreed that his Sierra Leonean club FC Mattia would receive compensation from Ekilstuna in the case of a onward sale to another club.

He played for Ekilstuna until 2017 when he moved to Dalkurd and then on to Belgian side Trudien last summer. The player could not settle well in Belgium and recently returned to Sweden and signed for Djurgarden.
