ÉRIC ABIDAL: I AM NOT AFRAID


Photobucket


THE SCAR OF THE WARRIOR
by Riccardo Romani, photos by Antoine Doyen shamelessly downloaded from tumblr cos my scanner sucks

Two months ago at Wembley stadium he lifted the Champions League trophy while wearing his Barcelona shirt and the captain’s armband his teammates gave him. Two months before that, he was diagnosed with liver cancer.

But if you need your living room re-painted, I can come over and happily do the job for you, proudly so.

So much strength and humility in one amazing package. Bless you, Abi, and all the thanks ever to the OP for such a fantastic translation.

There are no words to describe how fucking amazing Eric Abidal is and how proud I am that he is a Barça player and how much of a fantastic role model he is, so I'm going to say this:

Thanks for translating! This really made me tear up. Abi is such a lovely person. All of the boys are. I loved that he talked about Puyi being such a badass. Abi's recovery was amazing. I didn't think we'd see him back until maybe September.

“You Italians are incredible… always making excuses!”
