In conversation with The Telegraph former Ajax player Ferdi Vierklau indicates that he hopes that the supporters of Ajax will give Sean Klaiber a fair chance. Vierklau received a lot of negative reactions from FC Utrecht supporters during his time at Ajax and he hopes that it will be with Klaiber this time is different.
Vierklau played for FC Utrecht in the past and after a few trips to Vitesse and CD Tenerife, the Dutchman ended up at Ajax. Vierklau had to deal with negative reactions to his address. ‘I had to deal with negative reactions from supporters who blamed me. That did surprise me. Supporters must understand that as a player you want to get the most out of your career. I went to Ajax because I absolutely wanted to become champion one time. As a football player you want to play for the prizes and in the end I succeeded. ‘
Vierklau now also expects negative reactions, but he hopes that Klaiber will get a fair chance. ‘There will now also be negative comments, but I hope people handle them wisely. I wish Sean this great step and I hope that the FC Utrecht supporters will eventually do the same. I hope that the supporters of Ajax will give him a fair chance and not have their judgment ready.
The former Ajax player therefore thinks that Klaiber suits Ajax with his qualities. ‘With his great attacking qualities, he fits well with the game that Ajax plays. If you compare where Sean was two years ago and what level he is now reaching, the conclusion is that he has made significant strides. I think there is certainly more to it. ‘
Vierklau warns Klaiber for the pressure that comes with a large club like Ajax. ‘There is a lot involved in playing at such a club. Other things are asked of you, you are more in the spotlight and the pressure is many times greater. If you are not feeling well for two weeks, you are wrong. That is really different from FC Utrecht. Sean is a good boy and I sincerely hope that he will succeed at Ajax. ‘
