Monaco defender Abidal: Barcelona right to release me
Abidal has backed away from previous comments hitting out at Barca management.
"I didn't feel let down by anyone because my contract was up. I understand and respect the club's decision. They told me it was a professional matter. After an illness like mine, it's hard to make decisions, but I think it was the best decision they could make."
