This is the title of Barça TV's report on the Frenchman, who is currently recovering from liver transplant surgery
Barça TV’s ‘Porta 104’ programme zeroed in on Éric Abidal this afternoon. The nine-minute documentary takes a look at the Frenchman’s trajectory since he was diagnosed with a live tumour. The documentary also highlights his return to competitive play in the semi-finals of the Champions League against Real Madrid; the trophy he lifted in Wembley; the support from his team-mates and the fans, and his return to training in Val d’Arán six months after his liver transplant surgery.
The documentary’s title - ‘Abidal, your struggle is our source of strength’ - is a phrase that Tito Vilanova dedicated to the Frenchman after the Joan Gamper Trophy Estrella Damm match. The Barça manager reassured the Abidal that the team would wait - no matter how long - for his return.
