Leone Stars Forward, Mohamed Buya Turay has participated in a successful training session with Sierra Leone Premier League Club Kamboi Eagles in Kenema.

As a result of his presence on the training pitch, many Kamboi Eagles Supporters stormed the field to witness his skillful display of the ball in Kenema District..

The Forward was very instrumental for Leone Stars in the 2021 AFCON Competition. Turay provided the assist that helps Musa Noah Kamara to Score against Ivory Coast.

During the Training Session, Turay gave the Kamboi Eagles players powerful words of motivation. After the conclusion of the training, there were security personnel around preventing Supporters not to overwhelm the superstar. As a professional Footballer in China, many  beleive that Turay with the provincial club is a sign of humility and giving to the community.

Like most Sierra Leonean kids, Buya started his footballing career on the streets of Freetown where he was reportedly spotted by the local club, FC Mattia. Turay would later start attracting interests from clubs in Guinea and Nigeria which subsequently led to his first trials in Europe. Unfortunately, the trials were unsuccessful as he could not impress the management at the Swedish tier-3 club Vasalunds and they thought “he was not good enough”

But Buya kept pushing until he was signed in 2014 by Juventus IF, a tier-5 Swedish club that later merged into IFK Stoocksunds in 2016. Since then Buya has steadily risen through the ranks. Between 2014 and 2018, he played for four different clubs, mostly in the Swedish tier-2 league. His real first major international breakthrough came in 2018 when he was signed by Belgian Jupiler Pro League side Sint-Truiden. The deal was reportedly worth €1.80m. He was loaned to Djurgarden FC in 2019 before finally been sold to Chinese Super League side HB FC in 2020. He left HB FC in April 2021 to join his current side HN S. Longmen in a two-year deal that cost around €1.50m.

Back home, Turay is considered a hero, perhaps not really because of his footballing exploits, but for his big heart out of the field. He is widely known and loved for his humanitarian strides in support of youths and children.
