Klopp happy with Premier League Decision

The Premier League announced Thursday that starting next year, each team gets five substitutions. No manager has been more vocal about bringing this to the Premier League than Jurgen Klopp, and he was extremely happy with the news.

“Top news for football, top news for the players,” Klopp said.

“We spoke a lot about it and the situation is that we all know that it will not get less with games. Nobody will step aside, no competition and no country.”

Teams can name nine substitutes to the bench and make changes over three separate intervals and halftime.
