Arsenal legend, Eric Abidal has come out to say that he did his best to make Barcelona a better-run football club.
He recently revealed that despite his efforts to make this happen, he unfortunately fell short everytime he tried.
According to him, for 2 years, he tried to make changes that he thought were very important for the first team, but it just did not work out.
He added that the moment to end his relationship with Barcelona finally came and he hopes the club will recover soon.
His words, “Over the last two years, I tried to make changes that I thought were very important for the first team,”
“But, despite my conviction and persistence, I failed. This second goodbye brings to a close two years where I tried to work to make Barcelona better.
“Two intense seasons which I decided to bring to an end on my own accord.
“Whilst the board gave me a vote of confidence on Monday, I provided my resignation on Tuesday, waiving the rights to the final year of my contract with Barcelona.
“The moment has come to draw a line under the link between me and the club.
“Right now the club’s situation is complicated, but be in no doubt that I hope with all my heart that it will recover and that success soon returns just as this great club deserves.”
