Abidal set to leave hospital

by Staff Writer | Posted on Monday, May 21st, 2012

Barcelona defender Eric Abidal will finally leave hospital later on Monday, 40 days after undergoing a liver transplant.

Mundo Deportivo reports that Abidal will leave hospital on Monday, but also states that the former French international is unlikely to play professional football again.

Abidal was admitted to hospital on April 10th to undergo a liver transplant after more problems occured following a cancerous tumour in 2011.

He famously recovered in March 2011 after having the tumour removed from his liver and returned to play the full 90 minutes in the Champions League final of that season and lift the trophy.

He will continue to live in the Barcelona region after his recovery.
