Burkina Faso journeyman Aristide Bance is on the move once again with Ligue 1 Pro giants Horoya AC believed to be his latest destination.
Bance, 34, has enjoyed a nomadic career to date, with his current side Al-Masry in the Egyptian Premier League being his 20th professional club since graduating from the Stade d’Abidjan academy in Ivory Coast 19 years ago.
With eight goals and three assists in 18 appearances for the Egyptian side who finished in third place last season, Bance’s return has been impressive but he hasn’t exactly endeared himself to the club’s supporters.
Last year former Chippa United striker hit out at Egypt and ‘other North African countries’ accusing them of ‘slavery’ and treating black-skinned players with disrespect.
“That’s why Egypt failed in the World Cup,” he sensationally claimed, as per Kahawatungu.
And now his stay finally looks to be coming to an end with Sport Drome claiming 16-time Ligue Pro champions Horoya will buy out his final six months of his contract.
With 22 goals in 73 international appearances, his extensive experience in Europe and within African football will provide a valuable asset to the side pitted in CAF Champions League Group B – alongside champions Esperance, Orlando Pirates and FC Platinum.
