La Liga giants Barcelona have announced Eric Abidal as the new sporting director at the club. The former Barca star played almost two centuries of games in six years after moving to Spain from Lyon. He won two Champions League, four league titles, two Copas del Rey, two Super Cups and two World Cups. Whilst at the Catalan giants, he was diagnosed with cancer and had to do a liver transplant in 2012. He eventually moved to AS Monaco the following year.
