According to the media, Ueda said, “(The transfer fee) is just one of the criteria by which I evaluate myself. I don’t feel pressured. I want to improve every day to produce good results.”
“As a footballer, I am very happy to have the opportunity to play in the UEFA Champions League (UCL). Feyenoord is competing for the starting lineup. First of all, I need to secure my place. I will bring my presence to the team. That is the first task,” he said, leaving a determination.
Ueda grew up at Kashima Antlers Youth and debuted on the professional stage. He’s good at penetrating, good at positioning, and great at making decisions. During the Japanese J1 League, from the 2020 season to the 2022 season, it was well received by recording double-digit scoring in the league for three consecutive seasons (10-14-10).
His next stage was in the Belgian First Division (Jupiler League). Ueda, who advanced to Europe with Cercle Bruges KSV, showed off his determination without any adaptation period. He dominated the Belgian stage last season with 25 offensive points (23 goals, 2 assists) across all competitions.
Feyenoord, who had noticed Ueda, quickly approached. The amount invested by Serkler was 1.3 million euros (approximately 1.9 billion won), but he signed the contract by betting 10 million euros. In terms of percentage, it is a whopping 669%. As such, Feyenoord recruited Ueda with extraordinary expectations.
In the past, Feyenoord is famous among Korean fans because Song Jong-guk, Kim Nam-il, and Lee Chun-soo excelled. Last season, he succeeded in winning the Dutch Eredivisie by beating Ajax and PSV Eindhoven and advanced to the UCL finals in the 2023-24 season. Ueda has to prove itself once again on the UCL stage, where world-class players and the Dutch Eredivisie, the bridgehead of the big leagues, are mobilizing.
