Riise keeps his Fulham focus

John Arne Riise is fully focused on helping Fulham stay up and will decide his own future at the end of the season.

Felix Magath's side have given themselves real hope of avoiding the Premier League drop after posting back-to-back wins against Aston Villa and Norwich.

The latest success has seen Fulham close to within two points of 17th-placed Norwich, with just four games remaining.

Norwich face four teams from the top half of the league in these games, including leaders Liverpool and second-placed Chelsea, while Fulham take on Tottenham, Hull City, Stoke and Crystal Palace.

Norway international Riise has put all talk of his own future on hold as he focuses on helping the Cottagers stay in the top flight.

"Right now, I am doing everything I can to help Fulham to stay in the Premier League," he told VG.

"Nothing else matters right now. The future I will think about after the season.

"Then, I will be free and can choose whatever I want and where. I will certainly not stress (over) my choice."
