In an interview with UEFA's website
Carles Puyol has conceded an interview to UEFA's website where he remembers three Barcelona legends during his career at the club: Ronaldinho, Pep Guardiola and Éric Abidal.
"We were living difficult times when we signed him. Four years without winning, but then he arrived with that smile, that way of playing, that quality... that way of living. For me he is one of the most important players of the club's history".
"He created an amazing team that played brilliantly. It's not only how many titles we won with him, it's how we won them".
Éric Abidal and the Champions League he rised
"I thought about it the week before (letting Abi rise the trophy). He always took the bad news with optimism, he was sure to fight the illness. And he did. And he played the Champions League final".
