Klopp will see his demands for five substitutes granted this season.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Townsend scoffed: "I love how Jurgen Klopp has found a way to get his way. He's been moaning for years.
"They have been pushing back, and finally, they have given him his five subs.
"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."
