'I knew in 15 minutes': Championship star raves about Tottenham-owned gem
Millwall winger Jed Wallace has lavished Troy Parrott with praise after the Tottenham-owned player earned his first start for the Lions during Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Reading (News at Den).
The 26-year-old scored his fifth goal of the season during the contest with Millwall securing a fourth successive draw in the Championship.
Jose Mourinho allowed Parrott to leave Tottenham on loan during the summer transfer window, with the Championship club option to sign him for the season.
The uncompromising striker picked up an injury shortly after checking in with the South London-based club and has been forced to wait for his chance to impress.
Wallace is one of the Championship’s standout performers and he has claimed that it didn’t take long for him to see Parrott’s quality.
He told News at Den: “I thought Troy was brilliant, you can see the quality he brings, the footballing brain he has – he’s only going to get better.
“He’s 18 and he’s playing that well already, on the back of being out for eight weeks. Troy was someone that within the first 15 minutes of his first training session I knew the quality he had, the intelligence he has.”
TBR View – Parrott looks set for bright future
The challenge presenting the Tottenham youngster is to hold down a place in Gary Rowett’s team and hopefully fire plenty of goals.
Moving to the Championship might prove a daunting first loan move away from Spurs but he does have time on his side.
Wallace’s comments would suggest he is training hard and that his talent is there for his temporary teammates to see.
If he continues to show a determined attitude his first goal shouldn’t be too far away.
Mourinho has showcased so far at Tottenham that he’s not afraid to unleash the kids. With that in mind, the opportunity is there for Parrott if he can get going at Millwall.
