Alaba has recently resumed regular training action, and he's now ready to return to match action in a friendly later this week.
"I have been out of action for over 10 weeks now. I have never before been injured this long. I'm desperate to make my comeback," Alaba stated to TZ.
"I hope that Thursday's friendly will be my first game in quite a while again."
Alaba made 30 Bundesliga appearances last term, but has yet to feature in an official game this season.
