Paul Lambert full of praise for Troy Parrott after Ipswich Town debut

According to the Independent, Ipswich Town manager Paul Lambert has heaped praise on Tottenham youngster Troy Parrott who is on loan at the League One club.

The 19-year-old striker spent the first half on loan at Championship club Millwall. However, things failed to work out for the Irishman at the club. Having failed to make the desired impact, Parrott struggled for game time and was recalled by Tottenham, before loaning him out to Ipswich.

Parrott made his debut for Ipswich against Blackpool this past weekend and while he wasn’t on the scoresheet, the Tottenham loanee played a role in Alan Judge’s goal as his side won 2-0.

And speaking after the game, manager Lambert has lavished plenty of praise on the teenage striker.

“Troy Parrott can be anything he wants to be. For somebody who has just turned 19, if he keeps progressing he’s going to be some player. The pass for Freddie Sears was brilliant. We saw it in training. We know what he can offer.”

Parrott is held in the highest regard within the Tottenham ranks. A product of the club’s youth academy, the teenager made his first-team breakthrough last season. And even though he wasn’t able to enjoy a lot of game time under Jose Mourinho, the youngster has shown a great amount of potential.

The 19-year-old’s loan spell at Millwall hardly went according to plan. However, based on his debut at Ipswich, things could get better for the Irish centre-forward. A good stint out on loan would aid his development and he will return a much-improved player, potentially ready for first-team involvement.
