Barcelona fullback Alves makes season-long Abidal tribute

Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves is making a season-long tribute to former teammate Eric Abidal.

This season, Alves has changed his shirt number and is wearing number '22' in tribute to Abidal.

The Brazilian explained that he has decided to wear the French international's old number because, "he's a person who had a big impact on me on a sporting and personal level".
