Abidal returns with Barca reserves

Barcelona defender Eric Abidal has resumed match action again after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
With the majority of the players away on international duty, the Frenchman took part in a friendly match with Barcelona B against Ligue 2 outfit Istres on Tuesday.

Abidal was diagnosed with a liver tumour back in March 2011 and made a miraculous comeback only months later to feature in the Champions League final.

Nevertheless, the 33-year-old was dealt another blow early in 2012 as he underwent a liver transplant in April last year.

The former Olympique Lyonnais defender had since been working on his recovery process, and is now one step closer to making his first-team comeback after playing in the reserves.

Abidal last featured for Barcelona in the Liga win over Atletico Madrid on February 26, 2012.
