The Frenchman enjoyed a successful time at the Blaugrana, but has now revealed that his early relationship with Guardiola was not always positive.

The former France international recently shared a story of how he and the Spaniard clashed during a pre-season tour of the United States, where Guardiola told him to stop speaking French with teammate Thierry Henry.

"At the start, it was complicated," he told Y’a pas peno.

"I was the father of the family and we were in the United States getting ready for the season.

"Guardiola came to me and told me to stop speaking in French with Thierry Henry.

"I told him 'Don’t talk to me like this, I am not a child, and two, if I can't speak in French with Henry, why are the Catalans speaking in Catalan among themselves?'

"The argument got worse and the tension rose and I had to speak to the president to explain it."

Abidal did, however, also admit that he learned a lot from Guardiola.  

"He's a coach with great class. I learned every day from him," he added.
