After Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas announced that legal action would be taken over the injury Abidal picked up on international duty, the Frenchman has confessed that he is finding the situation embarrassing.
"I am not enjoying being in this situation," he admitted.
"I am surprised at how far things have gone. I have only one aim, to return to the game as quickly as possible."
Abidal believes that he is in an impossible situation, as he can not take sides in the dispute.
"I am prevented from standing up for anyone because I am employed by Lyon but also a member of the French FA. I don't want to be put under any pressure or forced into a difficult position," he said.
