Barça, Sevilla and the public showed their support for Abidal

Without being in the field, Eric Abidal also starred in the game they played Sevilla and Barça.

Although he could not stand by their peers, in the Sánchez Pizjuán everyone remembered Eric Abidal. It was the first game in which the French could not play after confirming he will incur a liver transplant, and how could it be otherwise, all showed him and showed their love.

Even before starting the game, he could see several banners in the stands where fans showed their support anonymous Barcelona player. "Fuerza Abi desde Castro del Rio," said one. "Animo 22Abi22" read another. Even earlier, when the team was on site, some fans were waiting for players with a banner reading "Abidal, ánimo desde Cádiz."

When both teams jumped onto the field, it was with T-shirts referring to French player. The Barça led a Catalan saying "Abi, shall return to guanyar" (Abi will return to winning). And Sevilla did a T-shirt that read "Animo Abidal."

The story was that when Keita was put to warm up and in the second half with the shirt with which his companions took the field, the fourth official it did change. (via SPORT)
