Club career

He began his career in Canada playing for the Oshawa Kicks and Scarborough Blues FC, before travelling across the Atlantic to link up with Dijon FCO in 1999. A move to Tourcoing FC followed the next year before his performances caught the attentions of Ligue 1 outfit LOSC Lille Métropole whom he joined in 2001. He only played for their reserves team however so his time at the Stade Grimonprez-Jooris was equally fleeting though but he finally found his feet at RAA Louviéroise, making 72 league appearances over the next two-and-a-half seasons and growing in stature.

Club Brugge

At La Louvière, he attracted interest from Club Brugge KV who signed the well-travelled youngster in a deal thought to be worth €900,000 during the winter break in January 2005. He initially had to bide his time at the Jan Breydelstadion but did make six appearances towards the end of the campaign as Club Brugge sealed the title.

International career

After representing Canada at the 2001 FIFA World Youth Championship in Argentina, Klukowski made the step up to the senior side in March 2003. He made his debut for Canada in a February 2003 friendly match against Libya. As of December 2009, he has earned a total of 26 caps, scoring no goals. He has represented Canada in 8 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[4].

He managed to make the All-Tournament team of the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup along with fellow Canadian Julian de Guzman.
