For the fourth time this season, Lassana Diarra is named Olympian of the Month. He succeeds Olympian captain Steve Mandanda.
1/ Lassana Diarra - 42.33%

With 42.33% of the votes, Lassana Diarra is your Olympian of the Month for February 2016. Shining against Paris, remarkable against Bilbao and very good against Nice, this Olympian midfielder displayed amazing regularity during the Month of February, but this really isn't surprising given his incredible performance since the start of the season. As a real leader on the pitch, Lass knows how to mobilize his troops and clean up when necessary. Against Paris, Diarra delighted us all with his technical abilities and used multiple body feints to defeat the Parisian defense.
For the fourth time this season, Lassana Diarra has been elected Olympian of the Month and is thus succeeding Steve Mandanda. He deserves it!

2/ Mauricio Isla - 16.07%

Mauricio Isla stood out this February. The Chilean international made a place for himself in Michel's starting lineup. His versatility makes him a valuable asset. While essentially a Midfielder, he is also able to move into defense, as well as on a wing. During this February, Mauricio Isla even scored his first goal with the club: it was against Nice.
With 16.07% of the votes, Mauricio Isla comes second on the podium of the Olympian of the Month.

3/ Rémy Cabella - 10.25%

Elected Olympian of the Month in December 2015, Rémy Cabella is now this time in third place on the podium with 10.25% of the votes. His presence on the pitch is essential for Olympians. This playmaker from MArseille knows how to work in a team, but he also knows how to create his own opportunities. This was clearly shown with his goal scored against Paris on February 7th. After slalom performed over several meters and having completely turned the Parisian defense around, Rémy Cabella tricked Kévin Trapp with a subtle strike.
Rémy Cabella once again had a very good month of February, and you did not fail to point it out.
