Souleymane Diawara (born 24 December 1978) is a Senegalese former professional footballer who played as a defender. Apart from a brief stint at Charlton Athletic, he spent most of his career in France, playing for Le Havre, Sochaux, Bordeaux, Marseille and OGC Nice. On international level, he represented Senegal.


Diawara began his career at Havre AC, spending two seasons in Ligue 1 before the club was relegated. He stayed at Le Havre until 2003, before signing for FC Sochaux.

On 19 November 2002, he made his debut with the Senegalese national team against South Africa in a friendly match.

In 2006, he was transferred to Charlton Athletic. The following year he joined Bordeaux to strengthen the central defense with Marc Planus. Diawara was dropped from the Senegal squad in August 2006, ahead of their friendly with Ivory Coast, due to a breach of discipline.

In July 2009, he signed a four-year contract with Olympique de Marseille, with the transfer fee estimated at €7 million. On 8 August, he participated in his first game for his new club against Grenoble, which Marseille won 2–0.

On 23 April 2011, Marseille won the Coupe de la Ligue for the second consecutive year. Diawara thereby became the player holding the record for most Coupe de la Ligue trophies, having won his first with Sochaux in 2004, his second with Bordeaux and his third and fourth trophies with Marseille.

In September 2015, Diawara announced his retirement from professional football.
