Liverpool Kops Good News

scousers.jpgWHAT with a summer transfer fund of a reported £40 million and construction on a swanky new stadium about to begin, things at Liverpool FC are looking decidedly rosy.

Even the players are enjoying their own bit of good fortune with their cash, with flame-haired full-back John Arne Riise learning yesterday that an embarrassing bankruptcy order against him had been lifted by a judge.

The 26-year old Norwegian had been declared bankrupt with debts of just under £100,00, despite earning a not-too-shabby basic wage of £50,000 a week.

The Sun reports that the case was linked to a dispute with Riise’s former agent Einar Baardsen and the while the bankruptcy, described by the Kop hero as “an oversight”, is now history, the dispute between the two men looks likely to rumble on.
