Pape Malick Diop
Club:Lorient
Position:Defender

Once described as the "heart and soul" of the side, Diop is still part of the squad if not always a certain starter.

The former team captain has switched clubs on a regular basis and is playing in France at present having made the transition from the Swiss league and Neuchatel Xamax.

He offers more the qualities of a work horse than a prolific creator.

The 27-year-old has recently been eclipsed by Pape Bouba Diop, three years his junior.
