Norway international defender John Arne Riise has dismissed reports linking him with a move from AS Roma back to Liverpool. A newspaper story on Sunday suggested the left-back was unhappy in the Italian capital and was keen to return to Merseyside. However, Riise said via the Giallorossi's press office: "I never said I wanted to return to Liverpool and I never made those statements. "I am settled here in Rome and I want to stay." The 29-year-old spent seven seasons at Anfield, making almost 350 appearances for the club before joining Roma in the summer of 2008. He has started 47 matches for the Serie A outfit.
