COMPETITION: Meet John Arne Riise in London on Friday
One lucky winner will win a pair of Meet and Greet tickets for the former Liverpool left-back’s London show on Friday August 5th in our free-to-enter competition.
Former Reds defender John Arne Riise is in London on the eve of LFC’s clash with Barcelona at Wembley and you could meet him, get his autograph and have your photo taken with him. Enter our competition in association with 5Times to be in with a chance.
JAR was signed by Gerard Houllier in the summer of 2001 and would go on to make 348 appearances for the Reds, scoring 31 times. Although predominantly used as a left-back during his time at Anfield he was well loved by fans because of some of his phenomenal goals in big matches. The song the fans sang for him reflected his eye for a cracking goal.
He won the Charity Shield and the European Super Cup in his first month playing for the club in 2001 and won them again in 2006 and 2005 respectively. He’s won both the domestic English cups – the League Cup in 2003 and the FA Cup in 2006 – and of course was part of that famous night in 2005, the year he was in the Rafa Benitez side that won the Champions League in Istanbul against all odds.
He left Anfield in 2008, moving to Italy for a spell at Roma before a return to the Premier League with Fulham in 2011. He eventually ended his career back where it started, at Norwegian side Aalesund.
Riise has made it clear at previous events just how proud he is to be part of LFC’s history and there is no doubt at all that he remains a huge fan of the Reds.
