Madrid: Spanish football giants Barcelona said defender Eric Abidal returned to training with his teammates for the first time since undergoing a liver transplant in April.
The operation was conducted on April 10, just over a year after having a tumour removed from his liver in March 2011, reports Xinhua.
"This Wednesday, the defender returned to training with the rest of his teammates," Barcelona said in a statement.
It is not pleasant at all that I had to approach the court but there was no option left for me. I am glad that I have been proved right and it has lifted my morale ahead for the Asian Games.
