Atletico Madrid rally round Abbiati

Atletico Madrid's players are rallying around goalkeeper Christian Abbiati after his howler in Sunday's 3-0 defeat to Barcelona.

While it's suggested Abbiati is only keeping the keeper's place warm for when Leo Franco returns from injury, those close to coach Javier Aguirre say he hasn't made any definitive decision over his outright No1.

Atletico defender Fabiano Eller said: "He committed an error, but on many occasions he has saved the team, only yesterday he did the same as well. We cannot load everything onto only him.

"We are all guilty."
