The successor of Lassana Diarra didn't leave any chance to the competition. You were almost 4600 to vote for the Olympien of March 2016 and the results are unquestionable.
1 | Steve Mandanda - 86,19%

The opposite would have been surprising. It comes as no surprise, Steve Mandanda is your Olympien of March 2016 with a crushing majority for the second time of the season (86,19%). Imperial against Lorient, extraordinary against Gazélec Ajaccio, no superlative could be strong enough to qualify Steve Mandanda. Without him, OM would certainly be in a lower place on the league table. The stops with his feet, the reflex parades, the opposite hand saves, Steve Mandanda repelled no fewer than ten forwards since the start of the season. Despite all media interest around him, Steve Mandanda remains loyal to himself, humble and especially continues to perform excellent games like the greatest goalkeepers of the world do.
With few months from Euro 2016, the Olympien captain has reached an exceptional level that can augur some nice things.
Il Fenomeno is followed by Lassana Diarra.

2 | Lassana Diarra - 2,47%

He has only played two games during the month, but it was enough for him to find himself on the podium of the Olympiens of the month: we talk about Lassana Diarra obviously. Came off in the half-time against Toulouse, Lass went to rest for a few weeks in order to avoid every injury. The Olympien midfielder returned against Rennes, where despite the defeat, he lost few balls and, like always, was cheered by the fans.
With 2,5%, Lassana Diarra arrives to the second stage of the podium of the Olympien of March 2016 election.

3 | Paolo De Ceglie - 2,25%

Paolo De Ceglie has played only seven minutes during the month, it was against Trélissac in the quarterfinal of the French Cup. It's hard to evaluate his performance in the month with that few minutes of play, but the Italian is on the third stage of the podium.
