Ligue 1: Monaco defender Eric Abidal makes Olympiakos switch
Last Updated: 05/07/14 9:15pm
Olympiakos have announced the signing of Eric Abidal, just two days after the French defender signed a contract extension at Monaco.
The Greek outfit confirmed the capture - on a two-year contract - on their official website.
The 34-year-old former Barcelona full-back only signed a one-year contract extension at Monaco on Thursday after arriving in the principality the previous summer.
Abidal, who has won 21 titles including two Champions League winners' medals during a glittering career, recovered from a liver transplant in 2012 to resume playing for Barcelona.
The Frenchman, who has also played for Lille and Lyon, is Olympiakos's highest-profile signing of the close season so far as they look to build a squad capable of retaining their domestic crown and making a sustained challenge in the Champions League.
