Totti Is A God – Riise

John Arne Riise has heaped praise on new Roma team-mate Francesco Totti, describing him as a “living God”.

Norwegian full back Riise completed his transfer from Liverpool to Roma last month following seven successful years at Anfield.

The 28-year-old has already moved to win his place in the hearts of the Giallorossi supporters by hailing club captain and symbolic legend Totti.

"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,” explained Riise.

"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."

Riise also explained his reasons for leaving Liverpool for this new adventure in the Italian capital.

"Roma are a great team, capable of winning the League, Cup and Champions League,” he stated.

“If I am here, it is because I know that this is a winning team, and I hope to make my contribution."

Riise has won 71 caps for the Norway national team, and played at Euro 2000.
