Riise happy he made Fulham choice

John Arne Riise is delighted with his decision to move to Fulham.

After AS Monaco, Liverpool and AS Roma, Riise's next logical move at 30 might have been to Spain or the Bundesliga, but no.

"I told my agent I didn't want to hear about anything but Premier League," he told the Independent on Sunday. "My best years were when I played here. The desire to come back was big, and when Fulham came on board, it was quite an easy decision.

"I spoke to Brede [Hangeland, his Fulham and Norway team-mate] and my brother [Bjorn Helge, the Fulham midfielder whom he describes as his "best friend"] and I'm loving it."
