Niels Strohkirch meets John Arne Riis
Updated: Mar 24
I pulled these pictures out in a timely manner. Liverpool FC is playing Tottenham Hotspurs in the Champions League Final in Madrid (no result while writing these lines). John Arne Riis came back to my mind today as he already won in 2005 with Liverpool this title. Respect! Can they do it again? As Juergen Klopp is German, I cross my fingers for him (sorry Tottenham, but I like Harry Kane!)
John Arne visited me at our Kinslager outlet to get suited up. He is a character.
John Arne gets measured up:
In Kinslager Lion T-shirt. You can but this T-shirt here.
Read a bit about his career from Wikipedia:
