TbT: When Éric Abidal lifted ‘Old Big Ears’ at Wembley

“To lift the trophy is a privilege and an honor.”

– Éric Abidal

Éric Abidal is a fighter.

Two and a half months after having a cancerous tumour removed from his liver, Abidal was given the honor of raising the Champions League trophy by captain Carles Puyol. This was when Barcelona defeated Manchester United 3-1 in the 2010/11 final. It was a special moment for the now retired footballer.

We’ve lived through many moments with Abidal, and this is a special moment I’ll never forget.
