Abidal is likely to replace the suspended Cris at the heart of l'OL's defence on Saturday as they take on Caen.
"The first two weeks after my injury were pretty tough but today I am fine," said Abidal.
"I came through a reserve team game and I have been training with the team for a week.
"I am keen to play if the coach calls me.
"I have often said that I prefer to play in the centre, but I do have the advantage of being versatile.
"I don't mind where I am put, the most important thing is to play."
