Recruited from RC Strasbourg a few months prior, the Senegalese attacker gave his new club a precious victory (1-0).

2005/06 season OM, who were trained by Jean Fernandez at the time, travelled to Alsace just before winter at full strength. After a difficult start to the season, the Olympiens were looking solid and together as a team in the lead up to the winter break, a state of affairs that enabled them to prevail almost as a matter of course at the Meinau stadium (17 December 2005, 19th match of the season), thanks to a goal from the former Strasbourg striker now turned OM player, Mamadou Niang. Out of interest, OM finished that season in a respectable 5th place, whereas Strasbourg, who finished 19th, dropped down a division to Ligue 2.
