Feyenoord has shown its faith in Slovakian player Sauer by extending his contract beyond its original expiration in the summer of 2026.

This move comes after Sauer transitioned from a loan to a permanent member of the team last summer, with Feyenoord securing his transfer from MSK Zilina for a fee exceeding two hundred thousand euros. The decision to permanently acquire Sauer followed a successful loan period, during which he evidently demonstrated his value to the team at Rotterdam-Zuid.

Throughout the current season, Sauer has donned the Feyenoord jersey eleven times, showcasing his skills and contributing significantly to the team's efforts. His performance in the Eredivisie has been particularly noteworthy, with Sauer registering three assists and scoring one goal across nine league matches. One of his standout moments came on August 20th, in an away match against Sparta Rotterdam, where his efforts helped Feyenoord secure a 2-2 draw, underlining his ability to impact games decisively.

Expressing his delight about the contract extension, Sauer shared his sentiments on the club's official website, emphasizing the honor of playing for such a storied club. "You don't say no to a club like Feyenoord. The stadium, the supporters, the organization: it's fantastic to play here," he remarked, highlighting the allure of Feyenoord's prestigious environment, from its iconic stadium to its passionate fan base and well-run organization. He views the contract extension not just as a personal achievement, but as a vote of confidence from the club in his ongoing development and contributions to the team.

This contract renewal signifies Feyenoord's commitment to building a strong, cohesive team by retaining talent that aligns with the club's ambitions and playing style. Sauer's enthusiasm for continuing his journey with Feyenoord reflects a mutual understanding and agreement on his role and potential within the squad, as the club looks to further its domestic and European aspirations with Sauer as an integral part of their lineup.
