Norway defender John Arne Riise says goodbye to football

Any Norway-related free bet tips soccer from the last few days would tell you that the defence in Aalesund is about to weaken. The reason is John Arne Riise’s decision to end up his career. We remind you that John Arne Riise entered his homeland Aalesund football club this March after spending few seasons in APOEL and Delhi Dynamos. However, what made John’s career remarkable was his presence in Roma, beginning in 2008 and of course, the appearance in Liverpool – the team he got Championship League Cup. It is the final, where free bet tips soccer prognosis failed for his miss in penalties at the end of the match. Yet, John Arne Riise signed more than 200 games with Liverpool, where he made an appearance as one of the best team’s defenders.

By all means, John Arne Riise is one of the most acclaimed and loved footballer in Norway. It is not only his first and last professional club Aalesund, who’s going to suffer from the leave. If we check out the latest free bet tips, soccer forecasts for Norway national team games (including those for the World Football Cup in 2008 that is settled for Russia, as you know) odds might have been changed, too. Let’s not forget that John Arne Riise has a record signed for the Norway national football team history. Even though a defender – and definitely one of the best ones in Norway and Europe, too – he succeeded to score 16 goals in 110 appearances only. So now, when the Norway national team plans to make a great appearance in Russia, the loss of John Arne Riise is something the coaches should be worried about.

But what made this great footballer to suddenly retire? Not only being 35-years old, but John Arne Riise also admits to feel tired. In an interview, he claims his body cannot get trained and prepared for a hard game anymore. John Arne Riise also says he does not feel strong anymore and it would be best for him to step out. Riise claims he cannot find the old motivation like before. Well, this sounds like a real reason for the ex-Liverpool defender to quit. Moreover – John Arne Riise has got a lot of injuries for his 20-year career. They seem to cause him pain right now because in the same interview the defender mentions his body is incapable of standing the ache anymore.

We hope this retirement would be more of the peaceful type, but not a doctor’s prescription. Knowing John Arne Riise’s strong will and hard game, he would be definitely able to bear any rehabilitation or medical procedure. What is known for sure, though, is that Norway and world football is about to say goodbye to a legendary defender, who also knows how to score and how to be a wall to rely on for an entire team. Liverpool, Aalesund and Roma players he used to share victories and losses with will confirm it, no doubt.
