Riise pledges future to Roma

Riise says he has ‘fallen in love with the city of Rome and the Roma fans’.

“My biggest desire is to end my career here in Rome,” he revealed to Il Romanista.

“I love this city and the Roma faithful as well.”

Roma have recently managed to bounce back from a poor start to the season.

“We created a lot of scoring chances earlier but were unable to take them,” said Riise.

“We are now netting goals and things are getting better at the back too. The team are more compact and we work together.”
