Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova is reluctant to put a comeback date on Eric Abidal's return.

The French defender is working his way back.

"Abidal’s case is different from any other injured player. It’s true that we are progressing, but it’s an exceptional situation and we can’t give any exact date as to when he will be back. He’s been with us for a few days and today’s training was just like any other day – he did nothing different," said Vilanova.
