Eric Abidal returned to competitive action for the first time since a liver transplant in April last year when he came on for the final 20 minutes of Barcelona’s 5-0 La Liga win over Real Mallorca on Saturday. “It was a very special moment for me after a year out,” said Abidal, wearing a shirt with ‘Merci mon cousin’ on the front. “I want to thank my cousin as without him I would not be here today. It is a unique moment,” he added.Reuters/PHOTO: AFP
