Remember this? John Arne Riise will be ready for another battle with Craig Bellamy…
John Arne Riise is keenly anticipating the opportunity to go head-to-head with former Liverpool teammate Craig Bellamy, eight years on from the infamous golf club incident that spilled onto the pitch in Barcelona.
The pair clashed ahead of the Champions League game at the Nou Camp, but set their differences aside to ensure it was Liverpool who progressed – Bellamy celebrating by swinging an invisible golf club.
After discovering that they will be on opposite sides in the upcoming Anfield charity game later this month (with Riise on Steven Gerrard’s team and Bellamy with Jamie Carragher), the Norwegian has been stepping up his pre-match preparations.
The 34-year-old, who currently plays for Cypriot side APOEL Nicosia, tweeted:
Was gonna bring my whole set of golf clubs when playing against Bellamy again, but think I might just need the putter Top man He is
