10th. Mahamadou Diarra: Djila, perfection in midfield
In addition to the return loan (from Bordeaux) of Vikash Dhorasoo, the OL makes a very light market in the summer of 2002. Jean-Michel Aulas naked signs that a check of less than 4 million euros to bring an absolute 21-year-old unknown, born in Mali and passed through the obscure OFI Crete and Speed Arnhem. But what a small investment will have big consequences. “Djila” Diarra is a phenomenon, both slender and hard on man, dominant in the air, strong in the short game, imperial in the long game.
