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

Club career[edit]

In his country, Vierklau played for FC Utrecht (1991–96), Vitesse Arnhem (1996–97) and AFC Ajax (March 1999 – 2002), appearing in 185 Eredivisie games over the course of 11 seasons and scoring five goals. With the Amsterdam club he won the double in the 2001–02 campaign, but was already a fringe player at the time.

Vierklau also played one-and-a-half seasons with CD Tenerife in Spain, being relegated in his second year in La Liga and subsequently returning to Ajax. He retired at the age of 29.

International career[edit]

Vierklau gained two caps for the Netherlands, in a period of eight months. His debut was on 5 October 1996, as he played 71 minutes in a 3–1 away win against Wales in the 1998 FIFA World Cup qualification stages.
