Riise dismisses Liverpool return
Tuesday 03 November 2009
Norway international defender John Arne Riise has dismissed reports linking him with a move from AS Roma back to Liverpool.
A newspaper story on Sunday suggested the left-back was unhappy in the Italian capital and was keen to return to Merseyside.
However, Riise said via the Giallorossi's press office: "I never said I wanted to return to Liverpool and I never made those statements.
"I am settled here in Rome and I want to stay."
The 29-year-old spent seven seasons at Anfield, making almost 350 appearances for the club before joining Roma in the summer of 2008.
He has started 47 matches for the Serie A outfit.
