Abidal with his teammates
On Tuesday Eric Abidal was diagnosed with a tumor on his liver which will be operated on this Thursday. The French player popped into the Joan Gamper training ground on Wednesday, before the start of training, to see his teammates.
After the draw with Sevilla and having enjoyed two days off, the team led by Josep Guardiola returned to training on Wednesday in order to start preparing for next Saturday’s game at the Camp Nou, against Getafe.
