Avec Abou: The joy, the pain, what might've been

  • THAT tackle by Sunderland's Dan Smith
  • The injuries, the rehab, the mental fight
  • Being seen as 'the new Patrick Vieira'
  • Going close to winning the title in 2007/08
  • Playing at the 2010 World Cup with France
  • Wondering about what might have been
