Liverpool boss Klopp throws shade at Newcastle coach after Prem rule change

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has taken a cheeky dig at Newcastle United and Jason Tindall over the Premier League's new ruling.

The Premier League has implemented several new rules this campaign – including one which permits only one coach to stand in the technical area at any time. The rule was seemingly created to tackle teams like Newcastle having multiple people in the technical area.

And when asked about the rule, Klopp immediately joked about how it would affect the Magpies. Klopp joked: "It's like that in the Champions League anyway. I think it's only a problem for one team: Newcastle. Sorry!"

Newcastle coach Tindall went viral for his touchline antics, and Howe admitted the rule will be a blow for Newcastle: "From our perspective, that's a blow… we've just worked naturally.

"Only one of us can do that, it’s just something we’ll have to navigate. I think you’ll see quite a bit of rotation from us on the sidelines.

"I think he’ll feel a natural tendency to want to get forward then be told he probably can’t. We don’t want to see him get sent off so we’ll have to try and get him chained to the dugout!"
