Abdou gets strength from son

"He's had leukaemia for about nine months and is having treatment, he's doing well and hopefully he's going to get well again.

"My strength is my son. When I see he is doing well I follow him, and hopefully we are going to get through it.

"He will be watching the game on Saturday so he'll be happy to see dad on the TV hopefully.

"When you play football for 90 minutes you have to switch off but when I finish the game the first thing I do is call home to see what's happening.

"When I go home and see him smiling and happy that's the main thing.
