Ex-Burkina Faso FA President Sita Sangare Sues Aristide Bance For Defamation

Former Burkina Faso Football Federation president Sita Sangare has sued former Stallions striker Aristide Bance for defamation.

Sangare claims that Bance, who is current Burkina Faso team manager, allegedly defamed him in a social media post as words used were intended, calculated, contrived and designed to mean and to be understood that he is not a decent and honest Burkinabe.

According to, Sangare argues the words Bance used on a Facebook live broadcast on April 2 insinuate that he and other former federation officials used to swindle part of Stallions’ technical bench salaries.

Through his advocates, the former FBF chief claims that as a result of the broadcast, his reputation “has been brought to public scandal and contempt.”

Consequently, he is seeking court orders to stop any comments on the broadcast.

The case comes up on May 10, 2022 at the Ouga 2 High Court, as Sangare has been able to serve the suit papers to former Chippa United forward.

Bance was appointed Burkina Faso national team manager in July 2021 immediately after quitting his assistant coaching role at Williamsville Athletic Club.

He played 79 times for Burkina Faso, scoring 24 goals, and helped the ‘Stallions’ finish second in the 2013 Cup of the Nations and third in the competition four years later.

Apart from Burkina Faso, Bance played in Belgium, Guinea, Egypt, Finland, Germany, the Ivory Coast, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Qatar, South Africa, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates.
