Riise: I made the right move

Riise: I made the right moveJohn Arne Riise is convinced he made the right decision to leave Liverpool and join the Giallorossi.

Following seven predominantly fruitful seasons with the Reds, the Norwegian, who has 71 caps, left Merseyside to embark on a new challenge in the Eternal City with Roma last month.

However, it was widely regarded that Riise’s Liverpool career was starting to grow stale after indifferent displays, in particular his own-goal gaffe against Chelsea in the Champions League semi-finals which ultimately cost his side a place in the final.

"Roma are the right choice," Riise told La Roma.

"I need a new adventure, a new challenge on a professional level and a lifestyle change."

"I have been well received, just like in a real family. (Coach Luciano) Spalletti is a man who loves his job, asks for 100 per cent from his players, and he knows how to obtain this."

Riise also told Roma fans what they can expect from him on the field next season.

"I'm someone who likes to run a great deal, make tackles and work for the team," he concluded.
