Eric returns to training

Barcelona defender Eric Abidal returned to training with his teammates Wednesday for the first time since undergoing a liver transplant in April, the club said.

The French international underwent the liver transplant operation on April 10 just over a year after having a tumour removed from his liver in March 2011.

"This Wednesday, the defender returned to training with the rest of his teammates," Barcelona said in a statement.

Abidal, who had been training separately, including at a mountain camp in the Catalan Pyrenees, has not played for the Spanish league leaders since February 26.
