Eric Abidal: Is back in action for Barcelona

The France defender made his first-team comeback this month after over a year out following liver surgery.

Abidal had been recovering after undergoing a liver transplant last April, having previously had surgery to remove a tumour in March 2011.

The full-back's contract runs out in June and, while there have been reports in Spain that Barca may offer him an ambassadorial role, the 33-year-old is keen to continue playing.

He told Spanish radio station RAC1: "If my health permits I want to continue playing at the club but my contract ends in June.

"What if they do not call me?

"Someone told me something (about an ambassador's role) but not directly. I know that the president has plans for me.

"Anyway, only I can decide my future.

"Time and God will say if I can't go on and if then I have to be an ambassador, I would be happy.

"I would retire at the club but it depends on them, not me."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
