Some Spurs fans have mercilessly mocked Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy after he revealed his opinion on Parrott’s new contract with Spurs.

Parrott has achieved a couple of important milestones this season including winning his first senior cap for the Republic of Ireland and making his Premier League debut for Tottenham.

The young striker ended up staying at Spurs despite being linked with a loan move away from Spurs last month (Sky Sports). A week ago, he signed a new deal with the club that runs until 2023.

When asked about the Irishman’s new contract, McCarthy insisted that he would have prefered to see him go out on loan rather than sign a new deal with Tottenham (Irish Times).

Some Spurs fans poked fun at the former Wolves and Ipswich Town boss, questioning why Parrott should take his advice over one of the most successful managers in the game in Jose Mourinho.

Here’s how some fans reacted to McCarthy’s comments:

McCarthy is obviously speaking with Ireland’s best interest at heart as he wants to see Parrott develop as quickly as possible and lead their line. However, Parrott and his advisors obviously wouldn’t have agreed to a new deal if they didn’t see a future at Spurs and a pathway to the first team.
