Abidal doctor: It’s a miracle

One of the doctors who operated on Eric Abidal last year has commented that his return to playing for Barcelona is ‘a miracle’.

The defender made his professional comeback this weekend, a year on from undergoing a liver transplant.

“It is a miracle, in the operation we tried to save his life, no-one thought that he would recover to this condition,” commented doctor Juan Carlos Garcia-Valdecasas to Sport today.

“Could he play for two more years? Possibly yes, I think that if all goes well then yes he could play for two more seasons.”
