Abidal, Messi and the Club could receive awards in tomorrow’s ceremony. “Abidal for overcoming a personal health issue; Messi, because he’s the best in the world, I think that’s indisputable and the whole world recognises it, and the Club because of the institution it represents,” said the Barça president.
