Mandanda: Marseille will turn it around

Marseille's form in 2015 has been sluggish, but Steve Mandanda is sure they will soon be firing on all cylinders again.

Steve Mandanda is sure Marseille will overcome a poor start to 2015 and reinvigorate their Ligue 1 title ambitions.

Marseille were the early pacesetters in France, losing just three of their opening 17 league matches.

Marcelo Bielsa's men have since lost three of the past five, including a disappointing 2-1 reverse at Nice last Friday.

However, goalkeeper Mandanda has no doubt that Marseille - who sit four points behind leaders Lyon - have the talent and character in the squad to rediscover their early-season form.

"We are aware that since the beginning of January things have been a bit harder," he told Marseille's official website.

"We knew it [a dip in form] was coming. All teams have a dip in the season, Lyon and PSG have one too. 

"We must be positive and get back on track. I know it will pass and we will get back to our best. Everyone just needs to find their own level."

Marseille host Evian in Ligue 1 on Saturday.
