VIDEO: John Arne Riise Reveals Best-Ever Goal.. and it Will Make Liverpool Fans Happy

John Arne Riise believes his goal against Manchester United for Liverpool in 2001 is his best ever.

The former Anfield full-back is fondly remembered for his part in their 2005 Champions League-winning team.

But he’s also a hero among the Kop supporters for the thunderbolt free-kick he scored against United 14 years ago.

It was so good, fans even sung “John Arne Riise, ooh ah, I wanna know, how you scored that goal” as he wrote his name into club folklore.

Now the Norwegian – who currently plays for APOEL Nicosia in Cyprus – has revealed his top five goals of all-time.

Four of the five are goals from his time at Liverpool – and this strike in a 3-1 win over United at Anfield has topped the list:

Riise will return to Anfield at the end of the month when he plays in a charity game alongside Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez.
