Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda: Why I had to leave Crystal Palace

Olympique Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda has shrugged off a difficult year at Crystal Palace.

Mandanda is back to his best after quitting Palace over the summer to return to OM.

"Return to OM a failure? Not at all," said Mandana.

"As I said, this return to OM was made in other conditions in a more ambitious club, which wants to find the European Cup, which is much more stable and framed. Just in relation to that, it's not a failure or a step back."
