Xabi Alonso: Is eyeing his return from injury

Xabi Alonso: Is eyeing his return from injury

Alonso is yet to play this season after undergoing groin surgery in the summer.

The 31-year-old decided to go under the knife, rather than compete in the Confederations Cup, only for his return to be delayed by a broken foot suffered in training.

Reports in Spain have suggested that Alonso could be back in time for this month's El Clasico against Barcelona, but Alonso has downplayed such suggestions.

Instead he is focusing on continuing his slow, but steady, recovery from a "tricky" injury.

"I hope to return soon. It has been a difficult summer," he told reporters at a function on Tuesday.

"I then had to push back my recovery after breaking my foot in training, but it is now getting closer.

"I need to respect what my body is telling me and not put the stress of a deadline on my return.

"At the moment I am training by myself and I'm at a point where I am close to returning to the main group.

"I still need to do a few things before I can fully join them.

"This is a tricky injury and I have to take it day by day. I am close but I have a way to go yet.

"I speak to the doctors a lot and it is important I don't rush anything or risk taking a backward step.

"This is a complicated injury. Some injuries you know a deadline but not this one. But now I have a good feeling."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
