John Arne Riise (36) will be helped by his former club Liverpool while he study to become a coach.
- Can not wait for 2017. Going to be at the Liverpool Academy while I take my coaching education. Exciting! Will learn from all the great coaches, Riise writes on Twitter.
He intends to travel to Liverpool on monthly visits.
- Once a month I'll be there and work with excellent coaches and players. There is much to learn, and the best place to do it is in Liverpool, writes Riise.
36-year-old had decided to retire in Aalesund in June, but in August it became clear that he would make a comeback for Chennaiyin in the Indian super league.
Riise's team is second to last in the league and have two games left to play before the season is over. Then Riise starts his coaching training helped by Liverpool FC.
- I'm doing this to gain experience while I take my coaching education in Norway. Being on the field, observing and learning, is the best way. I am grateful, writes Riise.
