Roma signing Riise: Totti like a living God

John Arne Riise is convinced he can win the lot with new club Roma.

The former Liverpool wing-back said: "Roma are a great team, capable of winning the League, Cup and Champions League. If I am here, it is because I know that this is a winning team, and I hope to make my contribution."

On playing with Roma skipper Francesco Totti, Riise gushed: "Unfortunately we have not trained together because he is returning from an injury, but he is extraordinary and a player here in Rome who is considered almost a living God.

"When I arrived, even if does not speak English, he gave me a welcome and shook my hand. He's a very nice lad, always cheerful. I repeat, he is an extraordinary player."
