One of our elder statesmen and someone who will see his contract expire come the end of the season, has re-iterated that he`ll be leaving Craven Cottage if he can`t secure first team footall.

Jon Arne Riise, now thirty three, has spoken to the media about his situation and has remarked,

“I speak to the gaffer all the time. We both know how I`m thinking – I`m obviously not happy. I feel fit and, if I get a chance, I`m ready, if not we`ll look somewhere else to see if I can get a move.”

It`ll be a shame to see the popular Norwegian go but is there really any point in hanging onto somebody who will, at best, be a squad player?

Surely, the place in the squad would be better served by one of the promising youngster coming through our Academy!
