"It was a moment special. There are not many of us that can win the Champions and much less have the special opportunity to raise the trophy. Always I go to appreciate to my mates this gesture", remembered does years Eric Abidal, when being asked after one of the gestures that already have happened to the Barcelona history.

And it is that one of the key moments in his recovery was when Carles Puyol allowed him raise the Champions League attained in Wembley, in the season 2010-2011, after yielding him the bracelet of captain in the delivery of the trophy. That was a gesture that resumía the feel of all the team but also of some fans, the one of the Barça that dumped with him. However, the player confessed recently that the things could be different.

As the Frenchman did not want to be the attendant to raise the trophy, as it considered that it touched him to his captain "Puyi". However, the insistence of the Catalan and that all the team (club, players and trainer) had decided it already, did that it happened one of the best days of his life.

"Puyol Said me that it took the bracelet, that deserved it to me. It said me that it had spoken it with the mates and with the trainer and that all the world agreed. I said him that no, but convinced me. It said me that it would feel me as in a bubble and like this was", affirmed "Abi" in an interview for "Barça TV".

Since the name of Abidal happened to form part of the Barça for all the life. From here that many are happy with the decision of the FC Barcelona to have he like new ambassador of the club. Without place to doubts, his experience in front of a hard illness like the cancer will join more still to the entity culé in the fight against this.

Dani Alves Offered him part of his liver

The Frenchman remembered does time how all inside the club culé dumped with him: "I agree Me of everything. Definitely it helped me and it showed that it was appreciated in Catalonia and in the Barça. It motivated me to say him to the people 'although I am ill, do not go to go to rack and ruin me'".

But if there is another gesture especially that remembers is, beyond all doubt, the one who had his excompañero Dani Alves for with him. The Brazilian offered him part of his liver. "It keeps on being an important person in my life", aimed on him. Now it will be able to contribute all these vivencias like institutional person of a team that is more than a club.
