Former Liverpool left-back John Arne Riise has made an exciting announcement about his next career move on social media.

The Norwegian has revealed his decision to become a football agent after he retired from the game last season.

The 37-year-old broke the news on his official Twitter account earlier today.

After a successful career spanning 20 years, Riise is set to pave the way for football’s brightest young talents and is hoping to help them reach their full potential.

He was a hugely popular figure during his seven-year spell at Anfield and the new agent vowed to send talent back to his beloved club.
