Former Liverpool and Norway defender John Arne Riise has retired age of 35. Riise, his country’s most capped player and a member of Liverpool’s 2005 Champions League-winning side, cancelled his contract at Norwegian side Aalesund with immediate effect.
His secret goal was to play football at the Norwegian top level until he was 40 but wasn’t going to happen. His worse… It ends here as this body, this head has been through so much over 20 years.
Enjoy your retirement John Arne Riise and I look forward seeing you appearing in the Liverpool Legends in the future and those thunderbolt free kicks. YNWA John Arne Riise.
