Abidal: 'I want to retire at FC Barcelona but I don't want to hide the truth: My health comes first'
Abidal: 'I want to retire at FC Barcelona but I don't want to hide the truth: My health comes first. I want to go back to 100% fitness, see if Guardiola gives me playing time, how I perform, how useful I am to the team'
Abidal: 'Life can change from one day to the next. I want to get back to my best. I know it will be difficult because we’re not machines'
Abidal: 'In football, it is the mental aspect that gives you the strength to play in these games. I make the effort because I like this job and because of my teammates and the club'
- While I understand Abidal wants to return to his best form to help Barça, it's also true that he got overwhelming support during his unfortunate liver tumour experience.
If FCB is offering him a new contract, it means Guardiola trusts him to keep contributing to the team. Therefore, he should sign the contract and stay.
ERIC ABIDAL: FC BARCELONA WANTS YOU TO STAY, TIME TO SIGN YOUR CONTRACT!!!!!
