Millwall legend returns home to France

By Jake Sanders

JIMMY Abdou has re-joined FC Martigues 15-years after leaving the club.

Abdou returns to the French fourth-tier side after he was released by Millwall at the end of the season.

The 34-year-old played 342 times for the Lions and played a key role in two promotion winning campaigns.

Abdou's last Millwall appearance was in the 2016/17 League One play-off final victory over Bradford last May before spending last season on-loan at AFC Wimbledon.

His most memorable Lions moment was scoring against Leeds at Elland Road in the 2009 League One play-off semi-finals.

Abdou has been granted a testimonial at The Den in July, with the opponents still waiting to be confirmed.
