The 45-year-old coach believes the addition of the ruling can be worked easily into the game, and that it will add a new tactical dimension.
"The rule is there in handball and basketball," he told Tagesspiegel. "But in football? No one seems to care. If a coach can take a brief time-out to explain to his players what needs to happen, it can add excitement to the game."
Klopp also had a word on his touchline antics, which have become his trademark.
"I am worse than the players in terms of aggression," he said. “I am really afraid that if I stop coaching, I will take it into everyday life!
"I could not be any other way. I am just happy that my way of working seems to be successful.”
