In an interview with the Algeria-based newspaper el-Heddaf, Xavi said: “This is what we have learned at Barcelona’s school since we were young, respecting the others; therefore in the Barcelona team, we are committed to respect our Muslim teammates, their religion and culture. ‘Seydou’ prays everywhere and this does not bother anyone. He often asks for a room where he can be alone in order to pray serenely, and in the dressing room we all respect him, as well as Abidal and Afellay; they are Muslims and the three of them are great.” Xavi was referring to Eric Abidal, Seydou Keita and Ibrahim Affelay, fellow Barcelona stars.
FRANCE -How did they qualify: Drawn into a group that contained not only world and European champions Spain but just five teams overall, France had precious little margin for error when their campaign kicked off. In the end, they made just one slip, losing at home to La Roja, but it was a defeat that cost them first place in the section. Didier Deschamps' side rarely sparkled during the group phase except for a fine performance on Spanish soil, where their efforts were finally rewarded with a last- gasp equaliser in a 1-1 draw. Ultimately they were destined for the play-offs, as they had been ahead of South Africa 2010, and their chances of reaching Brazil took a battering in Kiev, where Ukraine's superior desire and team spirit earned them a 2-0 advantage at the halfway stage in the tie. That left Les Bleus requiring a display of perfection in the second leg, but, with the Stade de France crowd in feverish mood, the 1998 FIFA World CupTM winners turned things around with a 3-0 win that could prove a turn ...

Manchester United Defender Patrice Evra Set to Join Juventus According to Le 10 Sport newspaper in France, Manchester United’s French left-back Patrice Evra is set to join Italian Serie A champions Juventus. With Luke Shaw likely to join United from Southampton, Evra will be on his way over to Turin. Under Evra’s current contract he has an option for an additional year, but it seems as though the Manchester club do not wish to extend the defender's deal any further than this summer. Evra makes £90,000-a-week and is believed to want to stay in Europe to continue his career at the top level. He arrived at Old Trafford in 2006 and has enjoyed a lot of success with the club, winning a Champions League title as well as five Premier League crowns. But if Louis van Gaal takes over as manager he will be looking for a younger crop of players to take the club forward. Inter Milan has signed Nemanja Vidic and the Italian team are also keen on Evra. They may look to scupper a deal from their Italian rivals, howe ...

ABIDAL BREAKS DOWN TALKING ABOUT TITO Ex-Barcelona player and current Monaco defender Eric Abidal was overcome with emotion when talking to 'Canal France' about Tito Vilanova, bursting into tears as he remembered his former coach and fellow cancer sufferer. "We had the disease one year apart. He was a great fighter. He will always have a place in our hearts and minds. He was a real gentleman", said Abidal, who beat liver cancer while at the Camp Nou. The 34-year-old France international added that Vilanova, who was just 45 when he died, "went very quickly, which is always tough to take", before sending his support to Tito's family. Abidal was speaking to the press after his team, who sit second in the Ligue 1 table behind PSG, beat Ajaccio 4-1. The defender had previously paid tribute to Vilanova both on social media and via an official statement released by Monaco, as he is the club captain
According to Skysports and Guillem Balague (Football author) Valdes's next stop in his football career will be at the recently risen AS Monaco, joining Eric Abidal at the french club. It is rumoured that pre-contract deals have already been made.

The death of Tito Vilanova today aged just 45 is truly truly heart breaking. There has been a tragedy hanging around the city of Barcelona since the death of Danny Jarque, and the poignant message for him by Iniesta in his World Cup final goal, the cancer to Eric Abidal, the demise of Guardiola, the two year fight of Tito against his own cancer. And today it finally all ended. That era that cycle that swagger of the great Barcelona of a few years ago has been dying away slowly all season, just like Tito. And today it all ended. For all the charisma and the inspiration that was Guardiola, the brains and the tactics was Tito. And the team that survives is a shell of dried up emotion. It has seen too much. We have lost Messi, Iniesta, Xavi, Guardiola , Alves (who also saw Puerta die at Sevilla) Pique, Abidal…..because today after all the fight after all the hope despite all the prayers we lost Tito Vilanova. RIP Tito and thank you for the magic you gave us.
Eric Abidal: "For all that we've been through together, you'll always be in my thoughts. "Love and strength to your family".
Eric Abidal: "I have seen wonderful things with Tito, I do not like to talk much, but I think it was understand me without saying anything, because he already knows what I want and I was as well.

ABIDAL AND NASRI OUT: Center-back Eric Abidal and midfielder Samir Nasri were missing when France coach Didier Deschamps named a 24-man squad on Thursday for next week's friendly against the Netherlands. Forward Antoine Griezmann was one of two uncapped players, along with left-back Lucas Digne who replaces Manchester City's Gael Clichy, called up for Wednesday's game. The 22-year-old has scored 19 goals in 38 matches in all competitions with Real Sociedad this season. Winger Franck Ribery and centre back Mamadou Sakho, both recovering from injuries, were named in the squad. Manchester City's Nasri was disappointing when France lost their World Cup play-off first leg in Ukraine in November, before they recovered to win the tie without him at Stade de France. Abidal, who is having a hard time at Monaco, suffered the same fate at the end of last year. Asked if Abidal and Nasri had lost their chance of playing in the World Cup in Brazil, Deschamps said: "Interpretations are up to you. Many players are out of ...
Griezmann gets France call, Abidal, Nasri miss out (AFP) Thursday 27 February 2014 Share Didier Deschamps has announced a 24-player squad for France's upcoming friendly against the Netherlands as their 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ preparations move into the final stretch. Deschamps handed debut call-ups to Real Sociedad striker Antoine Griezmann and Paris Saint-Germain defender Lucas Digne, while Manchester City playmaker Samir Nasri and Monaco defender Eric Abidal were omitted for the sold-out fixture. "I want to inform you that the match is a complete sell-out, which in these times is good news," said Deschamps. Griezmann's inclusion was expected after a dazzling season in La Liga that has seen him score 15 goals. Digne, who plays at left-back for the Ligue 1 leaders, and helped France win the FIFA U-20 World Cup, was preferred to Manchester City's Gael Clichy as cover for Manchester United veteran Patrice Evra. As for Nasri, his recovery from a serious knee injury put doubts in Deschamps' thinking, an ...
"You Muslims are TERRORISTS; I hate you," exclaimed a man to his Muslim peer as I bypassed them on the sidewalk. On hearing that, I stopped and asked him whether I were a terrorist because I am Muslim too. He looked at my business suit and clean shave and said, "you don't look a Muslim." We all burst out laughing. I educated him that though some so-called Muslims do bad things, it does not mean that all Muslims are like that. "Islam teaches peace," I told him. He was wearing an Arsenal jersey so I automatically guessed he was a football fan. "You like football?" I asked. He nodded in approval. "If you hate Muslims, then you hate these guys...Mesut Ozil, Frank Ribery, Zinedine Zidane, Nicolas Anelka, Van Persie, Karim Benzema, Eric Abidal, Samir Nasri, Abou Diabey, Thierry Henri..." "Stop! I get your point; I am sorry what I said earlier about Muslims." He smiled, we shook hands and parted ways. Juma Kareem folks.
Monaco have plenty of money and ambition but not many supporters When Monaco play PSG on Sunday it will be a contest of overseas mega-wealth at odds with much of French football David Conn Ten minutes to kick-off at Monaco's match against Lorient last Sunday, the yachts in the Cap-d'Ail marina just visible from inside the Stade Louis II, came confirmation that the striker all Europe relishes watching would start for Monaco. "Numero neuf," roared the stadium announcer, of the Colombian for whom Monaco paid Atlético Madrid that startling €60m this summer: "RA-DA-MEL FALCAO!" To say the crowd went wild would be exaggerating just a little. Assembled to watch Falcao, live on the Côte d'Azur, with João Moutinho, midfield rock signed for £22m from Porto along with James Rodríguez, who cost £40m; fearsome French international Geoffrey Kondogbia, who cost £18m from Sevilla; and languid veterans Ricardo Carvalho and Eric Abidal, were 8,500 people.

The French defender seemed quite upset and hurt by the way his club has treated him, alleging that the Catalan club had given him no explanations as to why his contract has not been renewed. "I've fought hard for them. I'm in great shape. The doctor was surprised about how I've come on, and I feel better now than how I did two years ago", the Frenchman said, who then went on to criticise Barça's silence: "They haven't given me any reasons. They just said it was a professional decision", he complained. However, the player said that he realises that he is left with no choice but to accept the club's decision to let him go. What hurts him is that they seem to be questioning his physical condition. "This clearly puts my ability to continue playing football in doubt. I´m the first person to judge my form.

Fc Barcelona defender; Eric Abidal, 33, made a tearful announcement that his current deal will not be prolonged beyond this season, meaning Saturday's Liga game against Malaga will be his last for the club where he has won two Champions League trophies and four Spanish titles during a six-year stay. After battling back from liver cancer and a subsequent transplant to return to the Barca first team in April this year, the former Lille and Lyon defender told RMC he had hoped the Catalan giants would allow him to see out his career at the Camp Nou. "I didn't take a decision because when your contract isn't renewed, you don't have a choice," Abidal said. "The club's decision is difficult to accept because part of my battle was for my family but also for the club. "I would have liked to have finished my career or had another year here at Barcelona. I respect the choice of the club, the staff and the board. I leave with six years of happiness, titles and good friends."
