Abidal: “It’s my best week since I’ve been in Barcelona“

Anna Segura

Eric Abidal is delighted by the way things have gone this week. He’s overcome injury and flu to play a major part in the victories over Inter and Real Madrid and told reporters on Monday: “It’s my best week since I’ve been in Barcelona”.

The French international fullback was a happy man in the press room today. He came back from injury and illness in record time to help the team beat Inter and Real Madrid and still found time to extend his contract with the Club.

Almost his first goal

2009-11-29_PARTIDO_32.JPGEric Abidal is not a born goal scorer so it’s no surprise that he has yet to score for Barça. However, against Real Madrid he almost broke his duck in the 75th minute but his shot drifted narrowly wide: “It would have been good to score. It would have been a gift for the week”.

The icing on the cake

Before the match against Athletic Club, doctors confirmed that he had a muscle problem that made him doubtful for the Real Madrid match – and to make matters worse he also had flu. Beyond all expectations he recovered in time to play on Tuesday against Inter and then on Sunday against Real Madrid. That’s why he told reporters today. “It’s my best week since I’ve been in Barcelona”.

The next three points

As for the match against Real Madrid, Eric Abidal admitted. “The matches against Madrid are important. It’s three more points”. And now he wants to see the team continuing on the same path: “We have to carry on like this and try and win the next match”.
