Fulham manager Mark Hughes has attracted the ire of Norwegian midfielder Bjorn Helge Riise. The younger brother of Roma left back John Arne Riise is growing unhappy at Craven Cottage over his lack of first team chances and will soon leave the club if his situation does not change.

"He asked me to be patient", said Riise to Sunnmoersposten, "but he never lets me play."

And if Riise does not get more first team football soon then the 27-year-old is sure he will exit the Premier League side. "If things do not change I’m leaving."

Riise arrived at Fulham in 2009, being brought in by former manager Roy Hodgson from Lillestrom for around £2M. Having played in Belgium before heading home and then on to Fulham, Riise is an experienced international and has picked up 27 caps for Norway thus far.
