Eric Abidal sends best wishes to Fabrice Muamba
Tuesday 20 March 2012
Barcelona defender Eric Abidal has sent his best wishes to Fabrice Muamba and his family.
The health of both France international Abidal and Bolton midfielder Muamba has been in the spotlight in recent days, with Abidal set to undergo a liver transplant in the coming weeks while Muamba is recovering at the London Chest Hospital following his cardiac arrest during Saturday's match at Tottenham.
Abidal, who also had a tumour removed from his liver last season, posted a message on social networking site Facebook which read: "Fabrice Muamba - wholeheartedly with you and your family!"
Muamba's condition has improved significantly since Saturday and the hospital confirmed last night he was able to recognise his family and respond appropriately to their questions.
