Eric Abidal excited about Valdés’ possible move to Monaco

Abidal and Valdes

Abidal is excited about the prospect of Valdés joining him at Monaco

Speaking to Spanish radio channel Cadena Sur, Eric Abidal had words of encouragement for ex trainer Tito Vilanova, too. “I have spare rooms at home for Víctor Valdés. We’ll welcome him with open arms if he wants to come and play at Monaco,” said the ex Barça player as he joked about Valdés’ possible move to Monaco. The Barça keeper will be available on a free transfer when his contract with the ‘Azulgranas’ ends next June.

Eric Abidal also refused to be drawn into any controversy surround his Barça exit: “I don’t have any problems with president Sandro Rosell or sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta. My contract was up and I wanted to stay, but it wasn’t to be,” he added.

As one would expect, Abidal hopes that Franck Ribéry wins the coveted FIFA Ballon d’Or. “He had a great season and is a good friend of mine. No Frenchman has won it since Zidane and it would be good for France,” he pointed out.

To finish off, Eric Abidal had some kind words for former Barça trainer Tito Vilanova and described him as a ‘fighter’ and someone who he prays for on a daily basis.
Speaking about his own health he explained that he will now be taking tablets and checking his TAC levels to see how his liver is doing for the rest of his life. “Life is complicated and you have to enjoy it as much as you can,” he concluded.
