Riise had fallen out of favour at Craven Cottage under the Dutchman, who was sacked on Sunday, and has not started a Premier League game since August.
However, with Jol's compatriot Rene Meulensteen now in charge, Riise is hoping for a chance to return to a Whites defence that has conceded 18 goals in their last six matches in all competitions.
He told TV2: "It will be an exciting week. I feel that I am in good shape and I am ready in case the new manager wants me to play.
"We have struggled defensively in the last few matches, now I will give everything in training as usual and hope to get more confidence."
