‘He’s been so unlucky’ – Some Spurs fans react to forward’s injury update

Some Tottenham fans were disappointed to hear that Troy Parrot will miss the restart of the season after undergoing surgery to have his appendix removed.

Although the teenager was handed his senior Premier League debut for Spurs by Jose Mourinho in the 5-0 win over Burnley December, he has hardly featured for the first-team since.

Despite being linked with loan moves during the January transfer window (Daily Mail), the Republic of Ireland international stayed in North London.

However, he did not even manage to get any increase in game time despite the injuries to the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and Steven Bergwijn.

The 18-year-old is very highly rated at Spurs but Jose Mourinho has made it clear that the Dublin-born product is not ready to be a regular in the first-team just yet (Evening Standard).

Some Spurs fans wished Parrott a speedy recovery while others insisted that the striker would not be much of a loss since he hardly plays anyway.

Here is how some Tottenham fans on social media reacted when the club confirmed that Parrott will miss the resumption of the Premier League:

Some fans certainly make a good point about the pro-Parrott crowd on social media who demand that the striker plays without having watched much of him. The teenager clearly has an abundance of talent but Jose has shown that he is more than willing to trust young players if he feels they are ready (Japhet Tanganga and Oliver Skipp).

We do not get to watch striker train everyday and should trust Mourinho’s assessment on whether he is ready or not to play first-team football. It is highly likely that Parrott will be loaned out next season with the club looking to bring in another striker.
