Giovanni van Bronckhorst: Barcelona's Eric Abidal is a winner both on and off the pitch

Dutch World Cup finalist Giovanni van Bronckhorst has praised Eric Abidal for returning from liver surgery to play his part in Barcelona’s La Liga win.

The left-back was diagnosed with a serious health issue in the new year and spent months on the sidelines, but recovered from his ordeal in time to take to the pitch for the close of the Spanish campaign.

The story is too old to be commented.
