Andros Townsend hits out at Jurgen Klopp’s ‘constant moaning’

Andros Townsend has accused Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp of ‘constantly moaning’ to get his way after the International Football Association Board agreed to allow five substitutes in the Premier League.

Klopp has been a frequent critic of the workload on players in the Premier League, hitting out against the busy schedule, lack of winter break, TV scheduling and rules on substitutes – English football used to be limited to three substitutes from a bench of nine, but those rules have now been relaxed.

“I love how Jurgen Klopp has found a way to get his way again,” Everton winger Townsend told talkSPORT. “He’s been moaning for years. They have been pushing back, and finally, they have given him his five subs.

“He’ll probably still use two or three in the biggest games.”

Townsend continued: “I think we saw last season, even the season before, constantly banging on and banging on. Votes on votes on votes. Getting pushed back, then all of a sudden, they announced the five subs eventually.
