Eric Abidal

Eric Sylvain Abidal is a French former professional footballer who played as a left back or centre back, and the director of football at FC Barcelona. In his career, he played mainly for Lyon and Barcelona, winning 18 titles with both teams combined, including two Champions League trophies with the latter. His later career was marred by a liver tumour, which resulted in a transplant. A French international across nine years, Abidal represented the nation in two World Cups – finishing second in 2006 – and Euro 2008.
