After August, September, October, December and March, Florian Thauvin has won the title Olympian of the Month for the sixth time of the season, which has never been seen before!
In April, the Olympian winger scored five goals and made two decisive passes in five games, the first since his arrival at OM.
His season is simply exceptional. Having already scored 15 goals and 8 decisive passes in the in Ligue 1 this season, FloTov 'is the X factor of OM in 2016-17. Decisive and regular, he has achieved the best season of his career and does not intend to stop there.
Those who were skeptical when he returned to OM are no longer due to Florian Thauvin's exceptional performances.

2 | Dimitri Payet - 14.47%

With two goals in April against Dijon and Saint-Etienne, Dimitri Payet has demonstrated match after match his rise in power since his return to OM last January.
In the game, Dim' does not resist to the effort, it defends, attacks, provokes, dribbles, centers, strikes, passes, ... The number 11 Olympien poises a challenge for the opposing defense team. He is focused and frees spaces for his teammates. A real specialised leader who also asummes his responsibilities with his team Dimitri Payet did all he could to get back to OM. Today he is happy and it shows.

3 | Yohann Pelé - 4.42%

As the Olympiens remained undefeated in April, they owe it largely to Yohann Pelé. With three new clean sheets, bringing his total to 17 since the start of the season, the Albatross reigns supreme on his goal line. His season has been exceptional
Unbeatable against Toulouse, Saint-Etienne and Nancy, he conceded only 2 goals during the past month, against Dijon and Caen.
