2020-21 ePremier League runner-up OLLE ARBIN chats to MATCH!

EARLY DAYS!

OLLE SAYS: “I started playing competitively around FIFA 18, so I’ve been in the scene now for nearly three years. When I was young, I just started playing video games! I love competing and when I’m coming into something, I want to be the best!”

EPREMIER LEAGUE!

OLLE SAYS: “It’s a fantastic experience! It’s a huge honour being part of this big tournament and playing for Leeds!”

REPRESENTING LEEDS!

OLLE SAYS: “I’ve been speaking to Patrick Bamford – I’ve played him as well in the club play-offs for Leeds! I’ve also been talking to (Ezgjan) Alioski. They are two really nice guys and the support all of the fans have shown me is fantastic!”

FAVOURITE FORMATION!

OLLE SAYS: “I think my favourite formation is 4-2-2-2! I’ve played it since the start and I played it a lot on FIFA 20 as well, so I feel comfortable playing it. I’m also feeling comfortable switching to 4-2-3-1 as well, so these are my main two formations!”

FAVOURITE PLAYER!

OLLE SAYS: “I’d say R9! He’s been my main player since I started playing competitively this year, so it’s definitely him!”

TOP TIP!

OLLE SAYS: “If you want to improve on Weekend League, it’s very important to take pauses. You can’t play 30 games in a row, it’s not good for your brain or yourself! You should also play players that are better than yourself as you will learn new things!”

FAVOURITE SKILL MOVE!

OLLE SAYS: “When I’m playing my best FIFA, I don’t really use skill moves for the most part. I’m just trying to pass as much as I can! If I’m going with one skill move, it’s definitely the directional bridge! It gives you a huge speed boost and can beat a one-v-one situation very easily!”

Olle Arbin was speaking to MATCH ahead of the ePL Finals. You can watch the action back as eight finalists went head-to-head on the Premier League’s social media channels (premierleague.com, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube).
