Abidal: New Barcelona contract or retirement

Eric Abidal is adamant he will end his career a Barcelona player - one way or another.

The France defender says if Barca fail to offer him a new contract, he will hang up the boots rather than play elsewhere.

Abidal said: "If the club were to propose a renewal of my Barca contract, I'd gladly accept the proposal.

"Otherwise I'll stop playing football and I will enjoy my victories and my family. I want to end my career here."
