In September 2002, he came over the the UK and after a trial, joined Yeovil Town where he played in their Conference winning side. He was released at the end of the 2003/2004 season, and joined Cambridge United, the club being relegated to the Conference. The following season, he joined Chester City, before dropping into non-league football with Weymouth in July 2005. With the Dorset club suffering financial difficulties, he moved to Grays Athleic where he played 6 times before being released. Abdou joined Diamonds on 29 August 2007 re-joining Garry Hill – his former manager at Weymouth.

After Woking’s relegation, he joined newly promoted Hayes & Yeading on 1 September 2009, but his stay was short lived and he was released the following month. Abdou retired from football to return the catering business which he had learned while in Paris after leaving school. His passion for pancakes saw him open up his own business in Canary Wharf, London in October 2010.
