Eric Abidal back in training after liver transplant, Barcelona produce epic haunting music video

Posted by Chris Wright

Eric Abidal's a fella who's been through an awful lot of late, having been out of action since February when he was diagnosed as having a tumour in his liver.

The good news is that Abidal has started training again for the time since his transplant in April, working on his fitness at a camp in the Aran Valley, so it was only fitting that Barca mark the occasion by producing a stirring 'music video' - featuring some first-class rambling, Rocky IV-esque mountain yelling and an exquisitely coiffured horse (that looks a little like Gerard Pique), all set to Two Door Cinema Club's 'Settle'...

Lovely stuff, the best part being that his doctor has tentatively penciled Abidal's first-team return in for December-ish.

Welcome back Eric.
