Riise AS Roma

AS Roma have announced the signing of Norwegian left-back John Arne Riise from Liverpool FC for a fee of €5m, which could rise to €5.75m with appearances.

Unhappy legacy
The 27-year-old, who has scored eight goals in 71 games for Norway, leaves Liverpool after seven seasons. Last term he played 22 games in the Premier League and scored an unfortunate added-time own goal in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final against Chelsea FC as Liverpool were defeated 4-3 on aggregate. In total, he scored 21 goals in 234 league games for the Anfield side, whom he joined in 2001 after spells with Aalesunds FK and AS Monaco FC. Roma will compete in the 2008/09 UEFA Champions League group stage after finishing second in Serie A.
