The former president of Angers-Sco Saïd Chabane placed in police custody in the context of a money laundering case – Le Journal des Entreprises – Maine-et-Loire
The former president of the Angers-Sco professional football club Said Chabane, also CEO of the Sarthois agri-food group Cosnelle, was placed in police custody on Tuesday April 4 in the premises of the Central Service for Races and Games of the Nanterre Judicial Police (Hauts-de-Seine), as part of a case of “organized money laundering”. The information was revealed by LCI, TF1 and the newspaper Le Parisien. This police custody would concern a player transfer case for which the Bobigny prosecutor’s office (Seine-Saint-Denis) has opened an investigation. Saïd Chabane resigned from the presidency of Angers-Sco on March 21. He had taken head in 2011. His son Romain Chabane, manager of the charcuterie company Valansot (€ 1.96 million in turnover in 2021), a subsidiary of the Cosnelle group based in Thurins (Rhône), succeeded him at the head of the club on March 25.
