The midfielders are in the spotlight in January 2017 as they take over the three steps of the podium.
1/ Rémy Cabella : 35%

The midfielder started very strongly in January with a double against Toulouse in 32e of the French cup final. In Toulouse, on January 8th, Remy Cabella qualified OM for the next round by scoring the two Olympian goals (1-2). Later in the month, the striker turned into a passer. Faced against Montpellier, for the match of the month at the Orange Velodrome (5-1), the Ajaccio native delivered two assists for Bafétimbi Gomis. Two goals and two assists, Rémy Cabella looked after his statistics in January but his influence in the game increased over the course of the matches. «I back with clear ideas, with a greater desire than usual, he said after the match. I needed it, I questioned myself. That is what makes me strong. There is only work that pays, I hope it will continue because I will not give up anything.»

2/ William Vainqueur : 17%

Less offensive than Rémy Cabella or Maxime Lopez who surround him on the podium, William Vainqueur has more and more impact on the scheme of Rudi Garcia. Placed as a sentinel in front of the defense, the former Roma sweeps the balls like never before. His slaughter during the meetings is impressive. He has become the recuperator of the team with also the mission to put his offensive partners on a good track.

3/ Maxime Lopez : 16%

Elected in November, second in December and third in January, Maxime Lopez has a taste for the podium. Less decisive than the previous months, the trained player at the training center gains experience with each outing and grows over the course of the matches. He finds spaces between the opposing lines and his technique on the stopped kicks is precise, it is on one of them that he delivered a decisive pass for Rolando against Monaco (1-4).
