Sierra Leone striker Mohamed Buya Turay told BBC the injury that forced him to sit out of the AFCON qualifier against Benin last Sunday was caused by “JUJU”. Buya recently won the Swedish league and also the golden boot.
“I had no toe injury when I played against Lesotho because no one stepped on me or kicked me.”
” But I started feeling pain on my toe when I returned to the hotel where the team were camped the following day. The pain worsened when we arrived at the training ground, it extended to the whole foot and leg, and I then decided to call some of my family members who took me to a woman native doctor.”
“The native doctor told me the cause of the toe injury was because I stepped on a spiritual object in Leone Stars camp, put there for me by a person who wanted me to get elephantiasis thereby destroying my career. She further told me that if I had gone to the hospital for treatment or had used conventional medicine to try and heal the toe that would have ended my career.”
