Abidal spoke with press
Yeterday, after morning trainig session Eric Abidal spoke with press. He said “I was really keen to get back to training with Barça. I missed it a lot. I enjoy training with Barça much more than with France. The sessions were really long and physical”. We understyand it completly after his unpleasant experience in South Africa. The French international is keen to put France’s World Cup fiasco behind him though he admits that it was a terrible experience: “It was a disaster but we have to close that chapter. We were all to blame, the players and the coach. The players tried to do things properly but the atmosphere in the squad wasn’t good either”.
However, now he’s focussed on FC Barcelona and he is expecting great things from the current squad: “The manager is very intelligent and has put together a strong, competitive squad. Our strength is our winning mentality. We train flat out to try and win every match. We fight hard even if in the end we don’t win”
