Former Liverpool wing-back, John Arne Riise had expressed his interest to play in Singapore S. League or Thai League.
John Arne Riise attended the game of Standard Chartered Trophy finals on Saturday as the guest of honor. Riise watched his former teammate Jermaine Pennant playing for Tampines Rover.
“I know that Pennant moved to Singapore. I would do as well.” said the 2005 UEFA Champions League winner to FourFourTwo Singapore.
“In the smaller league, you need the players from bigger leagues to talk and give advice to local players, push them to the next level. Now, at the age of 35, I would like to go to a country where I can help a team and help to build the local league in a country.”
“If and offer comes from Singapore or Thailand ,I would strongly consider it.”
