Everton's winger Andros Townsend has torn into Jurgen Klopp claiming that the Liverpool boss is always complaining to get his way.
Townsend gave the example of the Premier League allowing five substitutes from next season after enhanced calls from Klopp.
The German manager was on record a number of times calling on the Football Association to follow other top European leagues in allowing a maximum of five substitutes in England's top division.

Speaking to Talk Sport Breakfast, the 30-year-old opined that the celebrated tactician always gets his way.
I love how Jurgen Klopp has found a way to get his way again. He’s been moaning for years. They have been pushing back and finally, they have given in and given him his five subs. And he will probably still use two or three in the biggest games.
But, hey, who are we to argue with him?
I think in the biggest games Liverpool and City, they use one or two subs. They don’t use the full three subs.
I think it’s the games against Crystal Palace or Brentford, where they can’t break teams down, it’s 0-0, they have 11 behind the ball. Right, can we bring on five world-class internationals who are fresh who can change the game. Can we bring them on to break down this stubborn defence? And that’s where I think it becomes a bit unfair.
The former Crystal Palace star however appeared to contradict himself when he admitted that the rule will indeed help them. Townsend joined Everton this season where he scored 7 goals before an anterior cruciate ligament injury curtailed his season.
Jurgen Klopp told he lost Sadio Mane when he made controversial AFCON remarks
Sports Brief had earlier reported that Trevor Sinclair had come up with an interesting theory on why Sadio Mane decided to leave Liverpool for Bayern Munich.
Sinclair believes Mane’s decision to leave Anfield was largely motivated by sentiments made by Jurgen Klopp regarding the Africa Cup of Nations.
Mane was unavailable for Liverpool at the start of the year as he took part in the spectacle where he represented Senegal.
