Abidal hopes to celebrate 2013 with Barcelona playing return
The defender has fully recovered from his liver transplant and is now training with the Barca first team squad.
Abidal said: "I have leapt over many obstacles, but there are many still to go. I have cleared them all up to now, and if there are any more then I'll jump them as well as I can I feel well.
"It is eight months since my operation. I have fought hard and continue to do so every day. It's difficult but I'm always in a good mood and keen to return to playing."
