MADRID, Spain -- Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso expects to return to the field soon as his recovery from foot surgery nears its end.

The Spain international has yet to play this season after undergoing surgery on a broken bone in his right foot.

Alonso says he's started to kick the ball around but there are still a few things to test before full training at Madrid can begin.

The former Liverpool player says "I don't want to rush back and set myself back. I don't want to set a date."

Alonso underwent back surgery in the summer only to pick up this foot injury in training as he prepared to return from the back problem.

Madrid is five points behind Spanish league co-leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
