Burkina Faso football legend, Aristide Bance, was pictured upon a return to his place of humble beginning.

The former Chippa United star took to social media to share a 'bizarre' inspiring quote, to get his followers buzzing.

Bance began his career in Ivory Coast where he played for Stade d' Abidjan in 2000 before moving to Athletic Adjame the following year.

It was in 2006 when he got his breakthrough after signing a four-year deal with Ukrainian outfit Metalurh Donetsk.

Bance went on to feature for several clubs including Mainz 05, Ausburg, Asec Mimosas, and a host of others as per Transfermkt.

He is believed to have made a fortune from the game of football, but as he returned to his place of humble background, the former striker shared a 'bizarre' quote.

Bance was pictured seated on a wooden bench in front of a house in the ghetto, with his mural on the wall.

He wrote:

"There is nothing sweeter than a feather in the ear; goodnight."

His followers have taken to the comment section to dissect what the ex-international meant. One said:

"Is that a chicken feather or a guinea pig feather?"

Another added:

"It is also important to specify the type of pen used. For a duck, it's not worth it."

A fan wrote:

"Great Aristide rain of blessings upon you."

Bance almost right with AFCON 2023 prediction

Sports Brief earlier reported that Bance earlier predicted the two teams that will reach the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

The AFCON cult hero has not played since 2020 when he starred for Guinean outfit Horoya AC. Despite not officially announcing his retirement, he did not make the Burkina Faso team for the tournament.

The Abidjan-born star had suggested that Burkina Faso would meet hosts Ivory Coast in the final of the competition.
