Club career[edit]

Born in Martin, Slovakia, back then still part of Czechoslovakia, Klimpl played with Dukla Banská Bystrica and MFK Ružomberok for 6 seasons in the Slovak top tier before moving to the Czech Republic during the winter break of the 2001–02 season to join FK Viktoria Žižkov. The first two seasons with Viktoria were successful as they finished third in the Czech championship, however in the 2003–04 season they finished 15th and Klimpl moved to FC Baník Ostrava who had just been Czech champions in that season. He stayed in Ostrava three years and, although Baník failed to conquer the Czech championship in those years, they did won the Czech Cup in the first season Klimpl was with them.

In summer 2007, as an already established Slovak international, he left Czech Republic after six consecutive seasons in the Gambrinus liga, and joined Danish side FC Midtjylland.

In February 2011 after a successful trial Klimpl signed with Serbian club Sloboda Užice.[6]

In summer 2011 he moved to Cyprus joining Aris Limassol. Next summer he returned to the Czech Republic and for a season and a half played with third level side FC Chomutov.[7] During the 2013–14 season winter break he moved to Gambrinus liga side FK Teplice. In summer 2014 he joined FK Kolín.[8]
