John Arne Riise Plans On Moving To the MLS

Roma defender John Arne Riise recently revealed his next dream destination and it wasn’t to an expected destination like Barcelona, , , , Inter Milan, , or even big spending Manchester City.

The former man desires a move to America and the MLS when his time is up in Serie A.

The ginger defender, who conviently played for a club called the Reds a few years back, recently told Vg Nett publication that his next planned move would be across the pond to the States in a few years and the Norwegian left back revealed that he has desired the move abroad for quite some time now:  

We will talk about my contract with again at some point in September. I think the monetary issue and the length of the deal will be a formality. In my future I see myself playing for Roma for a few more years and then heading to the United States. I really want to play in the , it is a dream I have had for a long time.

And at twenty nine years of age, Riise is slightly younger then most of the European players that desire such a move to the American league and considering the fact that the defender has ten years of top level experience (between Liverpool and Roma), I would say that he is the perfect candidate to join such an ambitious league.

Riise also admitted that he did have a team in mind to move to and the choice should not be a shocker considering the destination is one of the most popular and well known globally to the world of football. Riise declared keen interest in playing defense for a club that once had a well known American ginger defender. The squad is of course the La Galaxy:  

I have not thought about a club yet, but where David Beckham is playing seems like a nice place to live.
