Top scorer (14 buts) and decisive passer at the club this season (5 passes), Mamadou Niang has been elected by the readers of OM.net the Marseille player of the month for May. A deserved reward for the Senegalese international, whose performances at the end of the season were fantastic. And, once again, his statistics speak for themselves.
Scoring four goals over the course of the month, he showed his complete return to form after having carried an injury up until the end of February. Toulouse, Nice and Rennes (twice) were his victims during a month in which he showed his great complicity with OM’s other striker, Brandao.
With 62% of the 50.000 votes, he came in well in front of the Brazilian, second, with 14% of the vote. Benoît Cheyrou, who also put in some great performances, completes the podium (5%).
All that remains for you to do now is to elect the OM player of the season 2008-2009.
