Riise has been usurped in the Liverpool team by both Fabio Aurelio and Ryan Babel as the preferred left sided partnership.
John Arne has lost his way at Anfield in the last two seasons, and hindered the reds with two own goals in cup competitions – the most significant in the UEFA Champions League semi-final at Anfield when the reds appeared to be taking a lead down for the second leg.
Riise believes he still has plenty to offer and feels he hasn’t been given a fair enough crack of the whip.
“I need to be playing and to be in a team where I can get better, because I know I can improve
“When you change clubs, you get a new set of challenges and it can kickstart things for you.”
