Masry striker Aristide Bance will return to the club on Friday after surprisingly going AWOL nearly three weeks ago, the Port-Said club announced on their official website.
The Burkina Faso striker, who joined Masry on a free transfer last summer, abruptly left in the end of October in protest over what he described the club’s failure to pay off some late dues.
But after Masry had said back then that they will be pursuing their legal rights against Bance, the coastal club announced on Friday that the 33-year-old towering frontman will arrive from his home country to link up with his teammates in Alexandria.
The Masry management, under the tutelage of Hossam Hassan, will then hold a private meeting with the Burkinabe to sort out the problem, according to the statement.
Masry, currently second of the Egyptian league standings, take on Arab Contractors on Saturday.
