How does it feel representing your club at the ePL finals?

I wouldn't call myself a fan but having represented the club in last season's tournament and again this year, I would say I've now got a slight soft spot for them and I now always hope they do well. It feels great to represent such a passionate, well-supported club and hopefully I can make them proud.

If you could meet one current Sheffield United player, who would it be?

I'd say Billy Sharp as he is Sheffield United through and through, and he just seems like a great person who has experienced a lot, so it would be good to meet him.

Who are your favourite players in the game?

I would have to say Ronaldo Nazario, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo. In terms of the Premier League, Reece James, Kyle Walker and Bruno Fernandes are all players I use regularly in my teams.

What's been the most exciting part of being part of the ePL?

I would have to say just knowing that you're playing for the opportunity to represent a Premier League club. Only a small amount of people can achieve that, so to be one of the people that has got this far is amazing!

What would it mean for you to win the ePL title?

It would mean everything. To win a title such as the ePL is something every professional player works towards constantly. It's the ultimate goal we're all chasing to achieve.
