A Liverpool legend during his time at Anfield, John Arne Riise, the rocket-footed Norwegian left back was a powerful presence in the EPL from 2001-2007 in a Reds Uniform. Riise made 339 appearances during his first years in England, scoring 30 goals for Liverpool.
He made the move to AS Roma in 2008-09 and made 133 appearances for the Wolves scoring nine goals in his three years.
It was announced officially today that Riise has completed a £2.4 million switch to Fulham. He will fill the boots vacated by short term Liverpool wannabe left back Paul Konchesky, and I must say he is of a different level than the now Leicester City man.
Another sticking point for Riise is that he will be joining his brother Bjørn Helge Riise, whom has been a Cottager since 2009, but failed to become a first choice player under Roy Hodgson or Mark Hughes, and the arrival of his older brother could propel him to fight harder under his new boss.
The signing of Riise could be one of the deals of the season, and I expect him to be a solid addition to Fulham this season.
