Éric Abidal will continue wearing the FC Barcelona shirt for at least one more season after the agreement to renew the Frenchman’s contract until June 30, 2012 with an option to extend said contract for two additional seasons, was made public yesterday. The defender started his Barça career in the summer of 2007 and in his four and a half years as a FCB player he’s managed to become a fan favourite and a leader on and off the pitch.
