Abidal on the mend


Abidal reported to the Club’s training grounds on Wednesday and exercised out on the pitch for the first time since he picked up his current injury.

At the beginning of February, Eric Abidal injured his left thigh in the training session held in the town of Reus. Doctors predicted that his recovery would take from between 6 and 8 weeks. A month later he has trained out on the pitch for the first time. Although the squad was given the day off this Wednesday, Abidal is determined to get himself fit for manager Pep Guardiola.

Henry trains apart

He was unable to join his team-mates, however, as the artificial turf and the remaining snow could aggravate his Achilles’ heel problem. On Tuesday afternoon he exercised with one of the fitness coaches and continued with this individual recovery routine on Wednesday morning. However, his availability for the Valencia game is not in doubt.
