Ex-Spurs man confident that this academy youngster ‘will flourish’ on loan next season

Paul Robinson has commended Tottenham’s decision to send Troy Parrott on loan to Millwall next season and backed the youngster to flourish at the Den.

Despite Jose Mourinho handing Parrott his Premier League debut in the 5-0 win over Burnley back in December, he hardly gave the teenager a look in for the rest of the campaign.

The Spurs boss has admitted that he does not think the 18-year-old is ready to play regularly for the first-team yet (Football.London).

Therefore, it did not come as much of a surprise when it was announced that the striker would spend the 2020/21 season on loan at Millwall.

Some Spurs fans were happy to see Parrott being loaned out to the Lions and were convinced that the youngster was going to take the Championship by storm.

Robinson believes that Parrott will get plenty of opportunities at Millwall and backed the youngster to continue his development under the watchful eyes of Gary Rowett.

When asked about the striker’s move to Millwall, the former Spurs goalkeeper told Football Insider: “We did not see much of him last year but at a club like Millwall he is going to play week in, week out.

“His chances were very limited last season even when they lost Harry Kane and Son for a prolonged period. It is a real opportunity for him to go out, learn his trade as such and play in the Championship.

“I am confident that he will do well there, I think he’ll score goals. He will be a regular starter at Millwall.

“I was impressed with Gary Rowett when he was at Derby. I like the way he comes across and he looks like he has good man-management skills and under a manager like that Troy will flourish.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I would not be surprised if Tottenham sought guarantees of a certain number of games before agreeing to loan Parrott out to the Den, especially after how Jack Clarke’s loan spells turned out last season. I would also prefer Skipp to be loaned to a Championship club rather than a side like Fulham as the most important thing for him next season is to play as many games as possible.
