In the US he wants to be an impact player. Arie is a very good passer and with his size and composure, he has the ability to have a perfect overview of the field. His first thought is always forward, but he recognizes the moments he needs to keep possession for a while. He is dangerous in and around the box with his powerful and accurate left foot. With his size he is dominant in the air, but he is also capable of passing opponents with his technique.
Arie will graduate next Summer from High School. After high school, he aims to pursue a degree in psychology.
Arie is modest and calm and will be in the background until he is comfortable with the people around him. He is always in for a chat and is a good conversation partner.
