Dani Alves angry by Barcelona treatment of Abidal

Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves has criticised the club for the way they offloaded Eric Abidal in the summer. The French veteran was cut loose after making a sensational return from a kidney transplant.

He told Rac1: "It was a rude awakening. On the efforts made by him and for all what happened. It personally bothered me because I love him very much and I wanted him here.

"Barça is more than a club for what they had done to get him back. But losing him like that then leaves it bittersweet."
