Klopp branded some France games as "boring", but insists he understood what Deschamps was doing.
He told France Football: "France had the right players and the right tactics. Didier Deschamps could have done quite something else with this team.
"Let them play, run, excite the whole planet to show how beautiful French football was. But he showed great maturity. He calmed and disciplined everyone, even making the games sometimes a bit boring.
"The job of a manager is to use the qualities of his team in the best way."
