Ferdinand 'Ferdi' Rudols Marcel Vierklau (born 1 April 1973) is a Dutch retired footballer who played as a right back.

Club career[edit]

Vierklau was born in Bilthoven, Utrecht. In his country, he played for FC Utrecht, Vitesse Arnhem and AFC Ajax (March 1999 to June 2002), appearing in 185 Eredivisie matches over 11 seasons and scoring five goals; he won the double with the Amsterdam club in the 2001–02 campaign, but was already a fringe player at the time.
