Barca confirmed on Wednesday that the defender had signed a new deal that would keep him at the club until 2012.
“I’m doing really well here in Barcelona,” Abidal said.
“This club is the best in the world and the longer I’m here, the better.”
“It’s an honour to have a player like Abidal at Barca,” added Barca president Joan Laporta.
“We are a club who have players with an excellent human quality.”
