After resigning from the position of technical secretary of the Catalan club, the Frenchman dedicated a few words to the Blaugrana fans.
Eric Abidal submitted his resignation as technical secretary of Barcelona last Tuesday, and this Thursday he wrote a letter on his Instagram account as a farewell to the culé fans.
In the message, written entirely in Catalan, the former French footballer explains why he decided to resign from his position, when he still had a year left on his contract and had been ratified by the Board of Directors.
“I want to take advantage of these lines to say goodbye to all of you. I do so from the deepest gratitude for having been able to share two important stages of my life. One as a player and the other as head of the Technical Secretariat of FC Barcelona”, the letter begins.
And he continues: “This second farewell contemplates 2 years in which I have tried to work to make Barça better. Two intense seasons that I have ended by my own decision. Despite the fact that the Board of Directors ratified me in my position on Monday, the last Tuesday I submitted my resignation. “
“In the last two years I have tried to make changes that I thought were very important for the future of the first team. Despite my conviction and my insistence, I have not succeeded. That is why I think the time has come to put an end to my connection with the club, “explains the Frenchman.
And he concludes: “I want to put on record that I have renounced the year of contract that I still had with FC Barcelona. Today the club’s situation is complicated, but have no doubt that I wish with all my heart that it can be overcome and that successes Come back soon as you deserve to this great club. Eternal thanks to all. Visca el Barça and Visca Catalunya “.
