Millwall manager, Gary Rowett, has been singing the praises of young Troy Parrott this week after the youngster netted his first goal for the club.
Parrott, who is on loan from Tottenham for the duration of the 2020/21 season, scored his first goal for Millwall in a friendly against Bromley yesterday.
The young Irishman impressed during the 2019 pre-season tour under Mauricio Pochettino and subsequently enjoyed a breakthrough season in North London.
Parrott was handed his full debut by Pochettino in the League Cup, before getting his first Premier League appearance under Jose Mourinho.
Not only this, but Parrott also earned call-ups to the Republic of Ireland U21 and then senior side last year, even earning his first senior cap.
However, with just four Tottenham appearances to his name, the Lilywhites decided to loan him out in search of more consistent game time (Wikipedia).
After Parrott netted his opening goal for Millwall, manager Gary Rowett had this to say (Millwall Twitter):
“He’s a really clever footballer and, once more, another example of how good a finisher he is. I think if we can get him chances he will score a lot of goals this season. Again, he’s a young player, he’s developing and we’ve got to help him in certain ways to get into those areas.”
