Former Sunderland striker, Kevin Phillips believes that Millwall is the perfect club for Troy Parrott to show his attributes next season and subsequently backed the Irish youngster to have a similar impact to the one Rhian Brewster had at Swansea.
Tottenham confirmed two weeks ago that the 18-year-old will spend the 2020/21 season on loan at Millwall.
The youngster was understandably delighted to complete his move to the Championship side after having hardly played any football for the past year (millwallfc.co.uk).
Phillips believes that the Spurs academy star could take the second tier by storm, just as Brewster did at Swansea, with the Liverpool youngster notching up 11 goals in 22 appearances for the Welsh club after his loan move in January (transfermarkt.com).
The former Golden boot winner also backed Millwall manager Gary Rowett to help improve different aspects of Parrott’s game by working closely with the youngster.
When asked about the striker’s move to the Championship club, Phillips told Football Insider: “Having worked with Gaz, he does a lot of individual work with players and a lot of positional work. I know for a fact that the kid will get a lot of one-to-one coaching.
“He has certainly got ability and we said earlier in the year that we would like to see more of him.
“From what I hear and what I have seen, the style of football Millwall are playing it will suit Parrott really well.
“It might be like Brewster at Swansea, he did really well and I think Millwall will be the ideal club for Troy to go and put his name on the map.”

While Parrott has a fairly large frame for an 18-year-old and has shown that he is no pushover, I am not sure he will thrive in a side that plays direct football. He is a technical forward who is at his best when he has quick players running off him. So, Millwall will be a great fit for the striker.
