Abidal cleared to play in last game with Barcelona


BARCELONA, Spain(AP) Barcelona says Eric Abidal has been cleared to play in his last game with the Spanish club after recovering from a nagging leg injury.

The 33-year-old French defender is leaving to prolong his playing career with another club after Barcelona decided to not offer him a contract extension beyond this season.

Abidal had missed several games because of the injury.

Abidal battled back from a liver transplant last year to play again for Barcelona. He also recovered from a liver tumor in 2011.

The Frenchman helped Barcelona win 15 titles in six seasons during the club's most successful run.

Barcelona plays Malaga on Saturday needing a win to cap its championship campaign with a record-matching haul of 100 points.
